~ WOW CHIT LOOKS STEEP!!!!~ Should be a fun week if I can get the boat in the water

Getting IN the water is never a problem.

I prefer State Dock ramp myself. You get a nice trip thru the park to the ramp.

Years and years ago, I just never towed my boat further than 1 mile (gas station and back) But for the most part I have kept my boats in the water or on a rack.

We rented the house boats from Beaver Creek, I did call and ask about the ramps and she said they are steep, But grooved.

I should be good. Thanks for all the help, I be sure to post naked girly pictures for you guys when I get back.

We did go a few years ago but I did not bring my boat and I never even gave the ramps a second look.. But I was told itís a dry county and bring your alcohol with you.
