Loving the lumpy water today

Been out for four hours today in the wind and rain from beaumaris to puffin island and then through the bridges. Massive swells by puffin coming off the Irish sea. Will post photos later, it's so worth braving the weather!!

You wouldn't have liked it down here. Looked like great conditions but very windy - once again the windiest in Britain. At least the sun was shining - then suddenly there was an enourmous clap of thunder - the sky went black and some of the heaviest rain i have ever seen with very high winds - then hail - in August. I pity anyone out on an open boat!!!

Photos would be great!!!

Beaumaris life boat tractor, how cool! it can go in the water right up to the top of the windscreen, you could snorkel in it. Also the dog at bennellech beach in the evening, thought he deserved some fame!

Also photo of the inshore boat, TRANSOMLESS, i want one. This is the first boat ive seen with no transom, well impressed. Do many boatmakers offer this? anyone used one?
