hi Well New Quay's slip has a very tight turn to get down it. held up the traffice there may times. and at low water you on the sand so a pain in a 6m.
Aberporth is across sand.
there are from memory a couple of slips in cardigan ans st . dogmaels m
fishguard lower town I think is ok.

Good slipway into Fishguard harbour, which is free to use, AFAIK.

Oops, pressed enter by mistake. The St Dogmaels slipway is on the Poppit Sands road, just past the Ferry Inn. Steep enough, free and a nice pontoon.

Road into St Dogmaels rather narrow with a 6m sib on the back...try Gwbert on the other side of the estuary, free launch on beach or years membership at teifi boat club is only about 85..then you can use the club slip and get a shower and a pint afterwards..

RIBase
Further south Porthgain is free, steep and easy but not really usable around low water.

And in st David's there is porthclais where my boat is kept, not free but I think only a fiver or so launch. Again easy around high but dries out at low.
