The deeper the draft of the boat, the longer the ramp and steeper the ramp generally need to be. Finding a ramp that can handle a shoal draft wing keeled boat is pretty difficult. Most have trouble with boats that have more than two feet of draft or so, and very few boats without a centerboard/daggeboard/swingkeel will have less than three feet of draft.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
