but I think the length and grade of the drop off should be investigated very carefully! I know in Florida there is often a 'stop' or cement block to stop trailers from rolling off the end. (not to mention the depth of water you'll need to float it.)
Hell, just launch it like my sister in law launches their 25' cabin cruiser - disconnect all tiedowns to the trailer, line everything up with someone on the boat, back down the ramp at 10 or 15 MPH until the tongue is in the water, hit the brakes - HARD.
The boat just keeps on going and "launches" itself. I think rollers and not bunks are essential to the success of this maneuver.
It sure isn't the way I'd have done it but you cain't hardly argue with success.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
