Toms River is very limited on boat ramps, most municipal ramps have been closed due to insurance reasons. If you don't want to dunk Typhoon Service Center has excellent rates for in and out service with a travel lift.

Coty's ramp on fisher is good , friend used to have the service end of the business there when it was rispolis and just after coty bought it. Have used that ramp many times with the scarab and my buds 40 scarab , 40 hustler , 35 beak. Just don't think he'll let you park there , not even shure he'll even let you launch there anymore. Coty just wants to sell boats , not much for services. njgr8ful turned me on to a couple marinas in forked river last summer that worked out to be the shiz for me.

I use this ramp to launch and retrieve two of my boats every season and IMO would suggest you use a different ramp if you're looking for "steep" and "deep water." Unless it's high tide or close to it, you're very likely going to be churning up the bottom of the channel.

Hey Huntser, glad those work for you They are good, deep water, ramps on Forked River, but of course too far for Chris. We gotta hook up this summer at Tice's or the Captain's Inn or SouthWinds. Spring is comin' quick (I better get to work on mine!)

Default Thanks for the help guys

I looked at cutting the trailer down but could only gain about 2". I also thought about putting a smaller wheel / tire. there are 950x16.5's on the trailer now.

I am going to check out Beachwood. I know in Pine beach you need to be a resident to get a ramp permit. My friend lives there and I went over with him last year. Toms River is B.S. they spend tons of money changing their "name" to reflect their shore community nature but dont provide a decent ramp for their residents. If you need to be a resident in beachwood to get a permit that will rule that out.

As far as the other ramps:

the ramp in seaside by the 37 bridge looks like it's sand ??- I would be afraid of getting the trailer stuck.

As someone said - gilford park and IH are both lousy

Ocean gate and Good luck point are options but still a drive from the north side of TR I'll check them out as a backup

I will also check out the deal at Coty's

thanks for your help

Chris

I drug on that Coty Marine Ramp so I would say it steep, my trailer is kind of low. You guys in Jersey get banged hard on ramp charges the most you pay around here (Richmond VA) is $8
