Nowhere that I know of in the river. Maybe there are some places downriver but I'm not too familiar with down there.
My suggestion would be the ramp just north of Selfridge AFB, the North river road ramp or Metro beach. I have friends that launch mid 30's boats at those places and have no problems.

I will be in the Trenton area so down river would work perfect if any one has any ideas.

The best ramp facility downriver is in Trenton. It's run by the county. Its called the Elizabeth Park Marina PH:734-692-3326 Call to see if they can help. Do you plan to trailer daily or dropping in to keep in a well? If the ramp won't work, I would recomend Gibralter Boat Yard 734-676-3177 and use thier hoist. I used them for launching my tugboat a few years back and they were fair and good. If you are new to the area, I would highly recomend getting a detailed river chart. Start learning it now, the water is incredibly low. As long as you stay in the freighter channels you don't have to worry but there is alot to see locally and if you know where you are you should be ok. A big plus to being in Trenton is your only 1 hr from Put-In-Bay. If you ask the St. Clair guys or the Toledo guys I'm sure will give you some imput. Hope to see you out there.

The plan is to trailer from Chicago this spring with one 47' FOUNTAIN, two 42' FOUNTAINS, two 38' CIGARETTES and meet some friends and family for a little fun run to PUTIN BAY. Any help on where to launch this pack would be appreciated.
