Can any of you with a bit of local knowledge suggest a realistic start time
Mike, I would give it at least another hour, as Ian & Paul have already said it could go either way but why ruin the day out for being a bit late, hopefully most will travel Thursday evening or on the Friday, but Easter Saturday can be a nightmare too if the weather is good

I'm going Thursday morning - gives me plenty of time, and hopefully a little trip on the water Friday.

If you're really late, pull off 55 and launch at Conwy at mid day, high tide!

We're driving down on the Friday too. Assuming we'll spend the day on the road and if we make it in time for a quick blast then that's a bonus.

Going to get the rib revive out this weekend to make sure she looks her best!

Yep, too right Chris. Down Friday, back Monday. Looking forward to getting out Friday, Saturday and Sunday, revisiting old haunts and finding new ones on account of not having a 2 metre keel underneath me!

Mind you, The Leader of the Opposition's already telling me to slow down and she's only sat on the boat in the workshop!

lack of funds can often stand in the way, just have to tell yourself to make do with what youve got and enjoy using the boat

Trudat. The old'uns like mine still appreciate a scrub up mind even if you don't have any 'real' money to spend on em. If I had the brass I'd put a 90 Suz on her like that one OP 5.3 that did the Round Ireland. Maybe the big console and the Scott seats too!

Ahhh, one can dream.
