STEEP boat ramps around St. Mary's/point lookout

I'll be splashing my boat at the end of this month and wanted to know if there were any boat ramps close to Point Lookout that I could use to get a fixed 4' keel in w/ about 1.5' of trailer under it. The best we've found it either on the Naval base (military ID req'd) or at Point lookout park which is a maybe at high tide.

The point look out is a maybe b/c it looks like the ramp stops before the entire boat will be wet. We measured about 7' deep at where we thought the back of the trailer/boat would be.

Anyone know of other places to launch such a boat? I'd really like to avoid a crane/lift for $100 each time I wanted to sail it as I don't have bottom paint on it yet.

Thanks.
