Thanks for all your advice - got back on Saturday after THE best holiday ever!

It's the perfect place for using a Rib and conditions were as calm as a millpond for the entire week.

Visited the following pubs in the Rib mainly by using the fantastic council jetties:

Jolly Sailor - Burton
Ferry House Inn - Hazelbeach
Lawrenny Arms - Lawrenny Yacht Station
Old Point House - Angle
Griffin Inn - Dale
Harbour Inn - Solva

Did a lot of boarding in Burton and did some classic sea kayak routes from Burton to Angle, Porthclais to Solva and back and Abereiddy to Abercastle and back.

Had a wee bit of bother with the Suzuki DF90 on the first day...for some unknown reason the pin that holds the shift bar in place deep in the engine failed resulting in ten hours of labour at Dale Sailing in Neyland...Carl and George (total legends) got the problem fixed within a day and we were back in action, incredible service!!

I will post a few pictures.

Few youtube vids:




Cheers

sorry to hear about your engine at least Dale Sailing were able to fix it.
Glad you had a good time

Did you venture past St. Ann's Head or just stayed inland?
