Yes David, Wales it is.
West Wales last week, some really good places to launch a SIB at all states of tide with transom wheels (obvious sore point!). New Quay, Llangrannog and Tresaith in this part of West Wales probably being the best and easiest IMO, and just really nice places to be. All of them have parking problems, but once you know where, how and when it's realativly easy.
The Dolphins around New Quay are just amazing, swimming around and under the Redneck, but just to fast to get any pictures.
The Gower this week. Not the easiest of places to get on the water, not only due to the huge tide range, but also a lack of places to launch.
Port Eynon - a lovely place but I wouldn't want to launch there. Low tide exposes a minefield of sharp rocks, I think the fact that the Port Eynon Boat Club boat park is empty tells its own story. It's also bloody expensive and difficult to get things sorted, Swansea Council just appear to be wanting to take as much money as they can from everyone. Knab Rock at The Mumbles - again not the easiest to get things sorted. The guy at the slip today just refused unless I had registered the SIB with Swansea Council, can't do this on the day.
Oxwich Bay is a private beach and slip. £16 for the truck, trailer and to launch with the added bonus that it is a beautiful bay. Back there again tomorrow.
