I think so, Chris should be able to accommodate us. I would have thought that you would be able to park quite a few cars outside his place. Even one behind another.

After 2011 it's no surprise, it was a fantastic rally seeing so many boats cruising together.

Wonder if Nitrox can get the journo out again?!

Rib cruise.

I have never attended a cruise before but would love to join you sounds like a great day out.

I have a Bombard Explorer 5m with a Johnson 50, will this suffice if it's a calm day ??

I sure hope the weather is kind enough to go the whole way around as I have the same rib as you too! PM me and send me a picture as you don't see too many and curious how you have got your console and seating setup.

Still, if it ends up being a bit too nasty for us there does seem a few of us with smaller ribs that can play in the Menai if that's our only choice

As long as we have somewhere to kip down for the night I'll certainly be there, don't fancy three of us sleeping in the car for two nights

Si.

Si,

Sounds like a good plan, I can't access any pictures at the moment but if you click on my profile there is a picture you can look at.

Really pleased with mine although I am on the lookout for a bigger engine !!

Mine seems to go pretty well with a Yamaha 60 2 stroke. Boats rated to 70 but doubt it would make a huge difference as 70 hp motors seem considerably heavier.

Regarding the 50 names and 6 turn up, last year we had 20 names and 18 turned up, and that was with rubbish weather.

A hardy bunch with hardy boats all up for a good cruise in fine weather and a good blast in bad weather means a good day out.

No better place than a cruise to find your feet in bad weather. Last year all were looked after and many smaller boats reduced to just the skipper by other kind larger boat owners. This enabled safety, fun and valuable experience for all involved.
