Re: Converting swing board trailer to wing keel trailer?
Are any ramps suitable for launching a 4' draft boat?
I think for the most part you are launching with a crane or travel lift at 4'. The vast majority of ramp launchable sailboats I've seen are either swing keel, ballasted dagger board, full keel, shoal keel, water ballasted or unballasted usually around 3' or less. I'm sure there must be some steeper deeper ramps around if you hunt around for them though. Launching at high tide might help.
