Looked like fun! I notice you've seen the delights of my local slipway

Was it this weekend?

Yes it was this weekend ..... its a decent enough slipway particularly with the pontoon but there is so much rubbish strewn all over the place ..... needs a working party of people to clean the place up ...... Had a good outing ... met up with a mate who has just bought Steve Hooper's Redbay ( nice bit of kit) .

The chap who runs the boatyard at the top does clear it periodically, however, seems the Oiks like throwing the sea defences rocks onto the ramp....

bit of a bugger once the water drops below the pontoon tho, water runs away fast and its really muddy. you end up with stream running between the nav poles and the central bridge supports..
Half tide, need to make sure to head out to the middle of the channel before heading to the bridge. as its shallow on both left and right.

Nice bit of kit that GoPro - you got some good footage there. By the way, you do know they are banned in West Wales. We don't want everyone finding out how nice it is there.

Watch out for Hyperdermic needles, I've found and disposed of quite a few over recent years.
