Re: methods of recovering a morgan 25 1967

If you can get a hefty pickup, maybe a one ton or better, load it up so it has traction, I'd bet it'll drag the boat if you can get something slippery under it. Thick old carpeting might work. Be careful having anyone around a strap that might let go. Do it without "pushers" in the way of a snapping strap/rope. The roller idea is a good one as well, although you might want to try to pad them too with some old carpet. If there is a local guy with a pc. of equipment like a small dozer or a large hoe, it might be worth paying him to drag it out.
