Yep, but prefer to head out of Fal.
PZ slip is tidal, 2hrs either side of top from memory and the parking is insecure and expensive. Two eves/three days days for vehicle and trailer was £45 last time that we launched out of there. You need to find an attendant, the machines can't cope with such a transaction.
If the weather is good, the Fal to PZ run is a treat, taking in Fal Bay, the whole of the Lizard and Mounts Bay, bit of a schlep in a 4m perhaps.
Fuel needs to be considered. it's probably £1.75 ish per Ltr by now and a pain to buy at w/ends.
Camping on Bryher works perfectly for ribs. If you run a search on here for 'Scillies', details of previous trips should be viewable.
When the weather is good,this must be one of the top ribbing destinations in the UK. We have encountered some 'challenging' conditions in the past.
