Hi Chris,The ramp sounds ok on to the main beach,but will need some decent transom wheels,which should i go for?If we set up on the beach we will be out of every ones way,either that or the slipway other side the car park.
HDAV,I suppose i could wash it down in the harbour,If caravanning not so easy if its launched off a beach,caravan awning is large enough to store it in,no one will see it in there.could clean it off with a towel and water if its not too dirty,flushing the outboard out must be the most important though.
My Mate did his course at Swansea,is it a 2 day course?If so i could do it at Dale whilst on Holiday,depending when the courses are.

HADV,just seen your photo of the beach,would need some good wheels to get out there and some good boots,Better make sure the tide times are correct before leaving,i have a tide table app on my iphone.

Indeed not a good idea turning up to a long walk......

Yeah level 2 is a 2 day course the level 1 and intro courses aren't really worth bothering with tbh. If you are down for a week then see if there is a course running.

The outboard needs flushing after each use the SIB only needs a good clean before being put away for storage, most good slips have a hose pipe you can use.

If I were you and staying at Little Haven, I'd be looking to launch at Llanstadwell, Hazelbeach, Milford Haven or Neyland. If you're looking for more sheltered conditions, then Hobbs Point or East Llanion are a bit further upriver.

Saundersfoot is a great place, but has its complications, as previously stated and is a bit further to travel from Little Haven.
