Hello there!

I Dont, I only have my boat at Abersoch and it stays there for the year unfortunately!

Haven't seen many ribs round Widnes?

I quite often see a rib playing about on the mersey, under the Runcorn. Bridge. Often wondered where they launched from

I have seen that also, I believe they launch from a private slip way that is a boating club, also they could launch from Frodsham Watersports.

I am always very jealous of them as I usually see them on my way back from Abersoch and the weather is good! However I dont know if I would be first to jump in that water

I don't think they launch at frodsham, I don't think there is a route through to the Mersey? Perhaps they come up from Liverpool ? Would be a good run though

They and I launch from Liverpool Sailing Club which is behind Liverpool Airport. The club has its own slipway, 1 million pound clubhouse with showers / changing rooms and a boat storage park which is a secure compound with 3 security cameras and 24 hour security guard.

Membership is cheap as chips - 135 for a year and boat storage for me worked out even cheaper than the annual fee.

I have a bayliner (I know a mistake ) and my humber destroyer which is a project and won't be going in the water anytime in the near future.

If you want anymore information go to the clubs website or contact me.

Thanks

Gareth
