St. Patrick’s causeway or Sarn Badrig also spelled Sarn Padrig as it is correctly called in Welsh is one of the reefs on the West coast of wales in Cardigan bay that was formed of glacial deposits left behind by receding ice sheets approximately 11700 years ago at the end of the Last Glacial Period (LGP) or ice age.

Technical Stuff about boats

A displacement vessel is limited by its hull waterline length. The formula for this is (HS = 1.34 x √LWL) or Hull Speed = 1.34 x the square root of the Water Lin Length. This equates to eight knots for a 10.9728 M vessel. There are other types of hull design these include fully planing hulls. These are fast but have a very hard ride and are not as stable as a displacement or semi displacement hull design.

Barmouth harbour located at the mouth of the Mawddach estuary rapidly expanded in to a major boat building center satisfying the demand for vessels caused by the boom in coastal shipping from 1770 onwards. An approximate total of 138 vessels were built on the Mawddach.
