Default Tarpon Springs area boat ramps - large center console?

It's been a decade since I've visited the boat ramps in the area and when there, the largest boat we've ever launched was 27' and I recall frequently hanging on the back edge of the ramp. We have a 34 yellowfin due to be delivered in a couple months, is there a ramp in the area long enough so we don't run off the back?

We have 2 private ramps in the neighborhood but both are a no go. I'm thinking Anclote ramp on high tide?

Anclote ramp has been much improved, but safer to go to Seminole street ramp in Clearwater with that setup.

The Anclote River Park boat ramp should work just fine for a 34 Yellowfin. I have launched and retrieved my dad's 36 prokat there many times.

Thx for confirmation. Never been that far down the ramp and unsure of the condition. We will try Anclote 1st since it's much closer.

I used to launch my boat there, it's a 31ft. The launching there is easy, the retrieval is a little harder. The ramps are slimy at the water line, the grooves on the ramps are wore down also. I have a 2wd Excursion and had problems spinning tires the last several times I was there, if you have 4wd you should be good.

The current can be fast and push the stern off the trailer. Plenty of help makes it better

Thx guys. Will do it on high slack tide with f250 diesel, drop and go. Boat will live on a lift and will only be trailered a couple times a year.
