That looks like the ramp in the Ozarks that we launced at. Very steep. Is that a problem with tractor rigs slipping back like that? Did you try having the boat running push the whole rig out?

Steep wasn't the problem, the trailer dropped off the end of the ramp and the drive tires were wet. It is going to be fun for them to find ramps long enough for the 55.

No weight on tandems - you should be bob tailing in the rain and have a car stop in front of you all of a sudden!

What an incredible boat. Congrats to Randy and all of MTI
It's 55' long and 12' wide and the cockpit is HUGE Were those the numbers you were looking for???

The USCG guys happened to be doing a training exercise at the time, and they were smiling from ear to ear

I would be very afraid of backing that particular one down any boat ramp.
I was thinking along the lines of a 19 footer, but was also curous how it would do on a ramp. It would save on having to find rooms.
