Yea, its pretty steep and has a sharp break at the top. I hit it at super low tide and almost dragged the trailer frame. Was pretty close but I made it.

It all comes down to common courtesy. This concept is lost on most people today. The individual is more important than the many.

We did on Saturday, it is way too steep and the floating dock is already breaking apart. Saw at least 3 trailers bottom out at the top of the ramp when pulling out. They really need to redo the whole thing. Only positive is that there is more trailer parking now.

Watching jetskiers at Haulover ramps is a lot of fun....I'm glad they don't own a boat for the sake of the public safety.

Would love some signs that say Waterway is for small boats under 25ft. They initially had said that when it first opened. The jackwagons launching with their 30 footers that cant even turn around should be a freaking clue. One boat taking up the entire staging dock should be another. Its bad enough I have to contend with the idiot jetskiers, at least they dont take up the entire basin and I can dock to go get my truck. Its not fun idling in the intercoastal with people cutting you off while you are trying to just go IN to the marina.

Common Courtesy never wins. I can launch or load my 23 foot boat solo in under 3 minutes. Yes, I had my fiance sit in the truck and time it. Its not rocket science, I use one rope tied to a cleat it cant get any easier. Cant possibly fathom how it takes an idiot 10 mins to load a jet ski, or multiple people 15 minutes to load a center console while one of those idiots filets fish.
