Everybody has different results based on their setup and how experienced they are. But I will say this: the only thing that keeps us from using (any) boat ramp, are the trees that overhang the road...

Your horse analogy is humorous. =] But I think you are intentionally omitting the fact that many people never tow outside their county/state. This vehicle is engineered for those folks.

When I was growing up my parents always towed their boats (24' - 34'), so it never occurred to me to do it any other way. These days, The Admiral and I trailer a 28' by 10' wide Doral, from 10 to...
