Re: Trailer extension or winch?
Why are people talking about negative tongue weight?
When the boat is on the ramp, at an angle, that minimal positive weight on the tongue can quickly turn negative. Boat ramps are often very rough and uneven, making a sling or winch launch needlessly risky, and the little wheel under the tongue has a tendency to wonder all over the place.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
