Gino,

You know how the flatbed car haulers work with the ramp sliding almost all the way off of the truck frame. Have a similar setup built that slides off the side of the gooseneck. Slides off, tilts, touches the ground, load bike on and tie down(while tilted), power slide back into place. If you don't mind the bike riding sideways.

A side loading ramp with with a hydraulic jig that the bikes rides up and down the ramp. Bike stays straight, and no pushing the bike up the ramp. I will expalin to you tomorrow when I see you.

Can you make a ramp along the center of the trailer between the bunks and 'ride' the bike up but will only work when the boat is off the trailer.

Please don't do this. You know the boat would come down with the bike on the trailer. You just know it.
