But you are not. Some other forums have rules about who can post links and pics etc, that then results in newbies posting nonsense just to get past the threshold, we do not - because we have plenty of pointless posts as it is!

Thanks for the comments guys. A bit of additional info, I've now secured a spot at Traeth Bychan on Angelsey to store the boat near my caravan, so 'll be beach launching there rather than on the menai straits like I have done previously. The beach is very flat so I'm going to have to give some consideration to how to launch successfully without turning my ML320 into an amphibious car. My usual trailer tongue extension wont be enough at anything other than high tide. A lot of the guys seem to have old tractors but I'd like to avoid that if possible.

I have seen these old Tractors on the beach in several locations. Do you need any permissions to keep them on the Beach or is a case of JFDI

I'd be keeping the tractor off the beach on my caravan site. There's about 50 yards of what is officially public highway from the site to the slipway though... I'm sure most people JFDI but I'll be looking into what insurances and stuff I'll need to have.
