I live in North Bay, Ontario, Canada. I plan on putting the boat on Lake Nipissing: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_nipissing
No marina on the lake has a proper lift. One has some kind of hydraulic trailer but they said the boat wouldn't have enough beam to fit.
A guy I know through work apparently had a 26 foot Kelt with a 3.5 foot draft put in directly off the trailer a few years ago and the water right now is substantially higher so I'm crossing my fingers that this guy who told me he could put it in directly will come through and not be too exorbitant in price.
The guy says he'll put the boat in right off the cradle mounted to his trailer.
I was just curious if anyone else has been through a similar experience. Thanks for your input!
