    Yeah, done it plenty of times. Just makes it easier when someone could just push you off or drive the trailer down to the ramp while you stay in the boat. Nevertheless, it's always important to be able to do things on your own!

    Most all of the docks here in Upstate NY Lakes I fish will send your boat in for glass repair in a hurry. Bumpers or not. It's almost like Cuomo wants to take $3500 in sales tax, charge out the ass for fees and then tries to discourage boaters from using public ( another thing I pay for) launches. So in short, either I need a set of power poles or one person helping

    Hey folks,
    Hope all are well!
    I use a long rope, tie it around the back of the trailer, and back down and let her float off , drive up a little so I don't get the piggies wet and pull the rope back in and tie her off til I park. Works great unless somebody takes her out while I'm parking!
    This works for me!
    Take care and GOD bless all!
