Afternoon all,
Could somebody tell me where's the cheapest / best place to buy flares? Roger seems to think we need two white and two red to comply with the registering / launching of the boat from council slipways. Also could somebody also tell me how much it is to launch in Rhos on sea / colwyn bay as we are looking to give it a short test drive!

Thanks for your time Sam.

Inshore pack of flares Sam, cant remember how many in the pack, as to the best place to buy them maybe Dan could help with that, i haven't bought any for donkeys years.
As to launching at the Bay, i don't think the slipway is manned until after easter but somebody could prove me wrong there, but you do know about the launching permit dont you? you will need your insurance document and your membership card and get down to the harbour masters office at Conwy, sorry i couldn't be more helpfull Sam, good luck with the trial.

Hi Gary, advice greatly appreciated once again!
Does it still cover us for Anglesey if we register at conway, or will we have to register at Llangefni as well? (sorry to be pain!) and lastly (hopefully) what is the "data tag" they say must be clearly visible in bold lettering on both sides of the boat?

Sam.

Hi Sam
The registration does cover you for Anglesey, Conwy and Gwynedd, not to sure about Flintshire but when you register at Conwy they will put you right, the concession the club has is for launching within the county of Conwy that is the pier slipway at C/Bay and the beacons slipway at Conwy, our concession used to include registration but sadly this does not now apply.
Data tag? this is a new one on me Sam but i can only guess that it will be the stickers that you will be issued to you when you apply for your Conwy launching pass, it will be for the benefit of slipway inspector, other than that when you register you would be issued with stickers to let the slipway inspector know that your boat is registered with them.

Get's complicated doesn't it.

PS
The registration for the North Wales boat registration scheme is chargable.

e-bay might be worth a look for an inshore flare pack Sam. Or here's a link http://www.baysidemarine.co.uk/product/Ikaros_Inshore_Flare_Pack_FLARES-0810

Try google and have look if there cheaper anywhere
Iv'e not had to buy any yet because i got given a pack off my next door neighbour. Think the expiry date is the end of the year so i'll have to buy a new pack then.
