local boat ramp or me?
Is getting a 24 foot fixed keel boat on a trailer usually:
depends on ramp
does anyone know the trick to having the boat come out flat on the trailer?
our local lake has a ramp that is steep, short, and drops off right about where my wheels need to be making a slow easy pull out challenging even with two truck's. The first one spun all four wheels by itself. Well, actually only two; the front and back drives.
our hoist only lifts one ton.
I got the boat out with great effort and had to jack her off(ha-ha)the trailer and lower her down in better position to travel. Not fun.
Now i have to decide whether or not to put her back in close to home or farther and more expensively away. Not sure if we have any crane trucks around here in a reasonable price range.
Any advise will be greatly appreciated.
