can't remember if I've mentioned this one before, but if anyone is still looking for accommodation this is just along the road from Ty Calch so is ideal if launching at Chris's slip, and walking distance into Caernarfon 👍 and no, I'm not on commission, just walked past it at the weekend so thought it might be handy info for anyone who's still looking 🙈Click image for larger version

We're coming in our 4.7 Searider with a Merc 60 four stroke on it.
(In case you're still working out your fuel - we consistently get 0.6 litres per mile (or better) at anything other than flat out, so I'd expect you to get similar.)

You won't get that when you're towing 2 or three of these throttle happy boys behind you when they've run out of fuel....again! ;-)
