Launch at Ronnies, £12,50 for tractor launch and parking for the car and trailer. No registration required. 3 tractors available and plenty of parking.

Launch from a council slip, pay for annual registration, pay per launch, launch yourself, pay for parking for car, pay for parking for trailer, get stuck with the car have a council employee watch you struggle at no extra charge.

Gwynedd council...............Priceless

About £16,000 a year in total. It costs over £100,000 a year to administer and in wages for the slipway staff. The cost to the council tax payers in this county last year was £102,000 for something that nobody wants. Democracy in action.

As I said Gwynedd Council..............................Priceless
