Chris we trained at Porth Daniel and did the Swellies a couple of times but will definitely need a chart to remind me of waypoints ....it is great fun though.

Look forward to seeing you on the straights.

Having the op to remove my right arm to complete the look next week....and like him I will be back to work within the hour,!!
Next time I'm out on the straits I will give you a salute as I pass under the Britannia Bridge Caernarfon bound

I like the Imray chart meself, loads of detail n the paper is waterproof, although the admiralty leisure portfolio is good as well

there's also the caernarfon harbour masters chartlets which are well worth printing off, loads of good advice

I tow it once a year down to salcombe to get it checked over and spend 2 weeks weeks around the area with family down there. No issues with boat or evinrude 150 yet , enjoy it ...
