Launch day is getting closer, and now I'm obsessing on how to get a 44 foot long 28 foot wide trimaran
from my back yard to the water
. We have a pretty straight shot-about two miles- to the Texas
City dike and deep water
. I'm gathering wheels and axles to make a boat trailer to get the boat to the water, but I'm wondering if it's a good idea to try and back a VERY long boat down a launch ramp
and try to float it off, or if I should bite the bullet and hire a 100 foot crane and step the mast
at the same time? Has anyone had experience with launching a big tri this way? Any input would be appreciated.
