Is it Possible ?

I have a 25 foot columbia centender she draws 3ft full keel on a double axel jaxs trailer. She is being worked on right now for the winter. Come spring with proper research maybe even some scuba gear. Is it crazy to think I could step the mast and maybe come up with a way to launch her from the right boat ramp and save my-self the money?

Re: Is it Possible ?

Yes it is possible at the right ramp on the right tide with the right tow vehicle.
You might want to investigate having a "Draw bar" made for your trailer that will give you extra "reach".
Some concrete ramps have a drop off at the end that can make it difficult to retrieve the trailer if the wheels go over the edge.

One day, when someone is searching the forum for information, do you think the thread title "Is it Possible?" will be helpful?
