Re: First Fixed Keel boat Launch

Find out the depth of the ramp. since it's steep it must be deep close in. Be very very sure the vehicle has the power and 4WD to handle the weight. Someone here would know the formula of weight pulling at a certain angle. I don't I know it increases exponentially! At my YC they use a long strap and dolly with with wheels under the trailer yoke. This is with truck wheels not a toy dolly. they do this with 30ft boats routinely. including mine
