Launching North Wales

Can anyone recommend a good place to launch along the N Wales coastline. Likeliehood will be a launching a 6 metre RIB by myself, looked at the slip at Beacons Slip Conwy at the weekend and think it maybe tricky with a fairly fast flowing current by myself, just wondered what alternatives there are.
Have looked in boatlaunch but either couldnt see anything or missed a good spot

Menai Bridge Slip is very good, its on the Anglesey Side just in the shadows of menai bridge.

Depends where you are wishing to go from but if your open to options Pwllheli has one of the best slips in north Wales.

Menai bridge is a definite, sheltered launching, generally fully tidal unless really large tide. Also the slip is good condition and there is water based fuelling from the boat yard 30m away. From there you can get good run up and down the straits from puffin to caernarvon.
