Bear Grylls Sealegs Rib

We were asked back in February to commission a new boat for Bear which was to be supplied from New Zealand and fitted with a new Yamaha F115 Outboard.

The boat arrived late on in April and after some faff we offloaded the boat from its shipping container, brought it to the yard and fitted her out.

The Sealegs provides a unique solution to Bears problem of getting people and kit on and off St Tudwals West Island as it is equipped with a patented hydraulic three wheel drive system which allows the user to self launch and recover the boat from any suitable launch site.

The boat has been completed and commissioned now so we went out for a watertest on Thursday afternoon and it was a little surreal driving into the water with the boat and just carrying on! We saw some dolphins too which is always a nice sight when you are out boating.

Bear will be down in the near future to take delivery of his new boat and we are sure he'll enjoy the freedom it will afford him and his guests when he is in the area.

Here are a few pictures of how the build happened.

So we have just come out of a bonkers busy couple of weeks here at the yard, the weather was pretty good for the late may bank holiday weekend and the following half term week, lots of boating was done and lots of happy customers used the yard. Talking of the yard we've deposited 80ish tons of nice clean gravel in all those areas that needed it and we now have a nice clean and tidy yard.

We've also spent a bit of time helping one of our customers get his boat over to Portugal by putting it in the back of a truck with the help of the guys down at Idealboat in Pwllheli and their monster forklift. The weather wasn't great, in fact it was terrible, but we did it.

Bank Holiday Incoming! Without actually doing a Timcast it looks like the Early birds on Saturday will get some boating in, Sunday looks like a windy pub day and Monday looks reasonable at the moment. It looks mainly dry for the duration which is good news.

Happy New Season! Yet again we've been super busy with everything apart from the website, hopefully we are now able to find a little more time to make regular updates to the site during the coming season which got underway in late March. The Yard is once again full for the 2017 season with a mix of old and new customers. Here's hoping we have a great boating season and who knows there might even be a Timcast or two! Tim is back at the yard full time and you can call him on 01758 713900 or email him.

Contacting us is as easy as mailing Tim or calling the yard on 01758 713900
