) and if its secure enough to leave boat on trailer by the lodges?????
I am lucky enough to have use of my parents holiday bungalow right next to longbeach.
Very secure and very safe and a lovely area.
The slip is usable but it's not sheltered and it's a steep slope.
Also you get a lot of people standing, sitting and just generally loitering on the slipway.
There are a couple of fellas who have a stall right on the slip, friendly and helpful guys who will give you a hand if you need it.
Watch out for Walden's ledge at low water between totland bay an colwel bay.
