Well we managed to get there and unpacked and for a few days the weather was beautiful.
The beach and slip way wasnt ideal as it wash all pebbles and VERY steep.
The guy on the slip has a winch though and was very helpful.

Already booked for first 2 weeks in August.
Thats the place that got me into sibs.We went last year with freinds that go every year and i ended up buy a little sib with a 15hp from someone on the site.
Devon was a little test run before we go as i built the folding launch trailer but wanted to try it out.

Thanks and yes Pentewan is a little on the expensive side but with 3 girls holidays abroad are even worse at present (and i cant take the boat)
Pick up truck is awsome to be honest its the Hilux invincible auto with the 3.0 Turbo diesel engine,managed to get 22mpg

thats great mpg.... i have an l200 2.5d but i feel thats a little underpowered...though i think i`m a little bit lighter on rig sizes.. and yes 2 weeks even in spain in august would cripple a town council nowadays
