You have gone to the Granada bridge ramp in Ormond. IMO that is one of the most dangerous ramps I have ever used. Narrow channel, super steep and open water allows a big chop to pound your boat.

Go over that Granada bridge and left on John Anderson (part of the loop) and at the end of JA is Highbridge road. It is 7 1/2 miles north but it is wide open (30 MPH) and a nice ride if you head north to St Augustine or just want a less congested ramp with plenty of parking.

We must have gone near it, or by in when we ride the bikes through the loop. You are right about the Ormond launch. I saw a guy in a 16 Donzi plowing up mud just off the ramp. Once we came in there with the wind blowing hard from the east, if I wasn't in my fishboat, I'd have had a helluva time.

The Ormond ramp by 40 is ok if the winds aren't blowing very much and there is plenty of parking across the street from the normal parking behind the library. This area is open to trailers during busy times at the normal parking. Very open in the back and very open for bigger trailers. The Highbridge ramp is also good if you are headed north and also it does have good parking. There is also a little known ramp under the Seabridge bridge also know as Mason Ave. Not great parking but only a few people know about it so it is usually not crowded.

Couldn't agree more!!! It is JUST a Ford (Found Off Ramp Drowning) . I would imagine he's out shopping for a Cummins rig now.
