Are there still floating pontoons at Saundersfoot?

At sea somewhere.
That’s confused me as Saundersfoot was always a drying harbour when I used to take my dinghy in there as a teenager. Have sea levels risen dramatically? Or did they install a lock?

Still drying. No lock.
Thank you. I've looked at the website now and it's still a pretty little harbour. I've also just realised that it was the first harbour I ever entered as master of my own vessel. (A Bembridge Scow called Jabberwocky that we launched off the beach at Amroth a couple of miles away and sailed across the bay. ). That was over fifty years ago.

Called into wiseman’s bridge (by land) on the weekend and my top-notch child’s binoculars (borrowed from my 5yr old) didn’t spy anything across the bay hence the question.

was blowing a consistent if gentle F3 and seemed rather exposed but a nice destination. There was a sport fishing cat/workboat at anchor off saundersfoot but no pontoons. Not thinking it’s an appealing anchorage but if the pontoons were there that might be different on a calm/sheltered day.
