Glad to hear its looking better for you Shaz

The Griffin is much closer to Dale Hill Camp site than The Lobster in Marloes - so sounds like a cunning plan

it dosent look hopeful for me making it, I have no MOT on my tow vehicle, and still have gaffer tape holding the boat together I do have a week off work next week, but with other commitments I think i will be hard pushed to get there.
Hope you all have a great time

Hi there,

Just to say I'll be coming along with my 6.5m Ribcraft Wild at Heart. Berthed in Neyland, so I'll meet you all wherever you're starting from.

I'll most probably be coming along just for the saturday.

Speak soon,

Mark

Is there a plan yet? As long as the weather is not rubbish I hope to be on the water on Saturday by 11am possibly earlier if i can get myself sorted. I will be looking to recover around 6 so am up for a full day out. I know that DownhillDai and Mark on Wild at Heart are hoping to be out on Saturday. That means that there are at least three boats on the water that know their way around the area very well. I can't be arsed to work my way through 17 pages to try and work out how many others there will be and what their plans are. If there is a plan let me know and I will do my best to meet up with as many Ribnetters as possible. If everyone is launching from different places the best bet would be to pick a place in the Haven and a time and all meet there before grouping up and heading out.

No plans as such Woot - but hopefully we might get to see you over the weekend

As someone who knows the area why not suggest somewhere to meet up and a time - I've had lots of interest but no 100% guarantees on attendance. At least that way those that are around can choose to catch up with others if they so wish.

We won't be down till late Saturday - so no ribbing for us over the weekend

J

PS Mark - fingers crossed you can make it - and of course feel free to suggest a meeting venue and time

As the thread has been focused on a Dale get together, why don't we make a provisional arrangement to meet at Dale slipway pontoon on Saturday, around 11:00 - 11:30?

Now, big question: Who's coming?

like the 11 to 11.30 at Dale pontoon on Sat.

Have a great weekend ribbing and hopefully see you out there at least one day.

Ed

I thought it was meant to be 'showers'... admittedly probably quite heavy showers...

I've only got a little boat so not up for too much of an extended cruise but I'll try and find you guys Saturday morning & work something out from there.
Sunny here at the moment so fingers crossed !

I'm afraid she's going to look a bit of a mess as I want to fill in all the little scratches which the previous owner put in the gelcoat, however I don't think I'm going to have time to get it all sanded down and looking nice by the end of the day so will resemble a fight in a sticking plaster factory. Anyway, suppose I'd best get on with it !

Just on our way down. Launching at 11 ish at Neyland. Meeting Mark B. and Woot on Wild at Heart and we'll make our way to Dale for 11.30am as posted earlier.
BTW it's raining!

Thanks DHD - just spoken to Sharon at the camp-site and only one little two man tent in the field - hopefully Shaz - so it doesn't look as if hordes will be waiting for you to arrive

Have a good weekend

J

We put the no planing buoys out on Monday this week in some fab weather (the pic shows Thorn Island to the right.... honest).... so look out for the yellow marker buoys or you'll have the water ranger after you

The tides are good for Haverfordwest right now. Went up on Tuesday evening on a 6.8metre tide and there was plenty of water.

There is a lazy swell coming through at the mo, without any wind it's not choppy really although it should make for some good pics of propellors out the water.

Only just signed on to ribnet first time in a few months so haven't been keeping up with thread I'm afraid. May wonder down to St Anns tomorrow with the big lens and see if anyone's passing.

-Alex
