The rules state all boats must be launched on the boat ramp, not crained in. I'd like to see that boat launch off that trailer on the ramp, and more so the loading afterwards.

It can be flaoted on and off, the trailer will lie flat when needed. I feel sorry for them having to use those ramps, with no dock it will be tough getting it back on.

If you click on the picture you can see the large hydraulic rams used to tilt the trailer. Heck a couple of people with PWC's could nudge it back on in the calm waters at PB2.

I wasn't very clear in my post. I know they flatten out (after studying one at MTI's factory -- very cool and made in rural southern MO, go figure) but dual axles usualy don't have water resistant bearings, and I'll bet the only place that trailer ever gets splashed is the Shoot out at LOTO.

It would be interesting to see a 50+ cat load on that trailer behind a semi, and then see it tilt afterwards.

If you can't crain in then Miss Bud can't enter. Nobody has more pull than Augie.

The NO Crain rule was new last year to keep her out, after entering the year before to keep the title in the Bud family after Callan beat Bacardi.

Just assume the rule's still the same, but you're right about Augie.

Your backyard not mine. I don't have a clue. I know tilt trailers can ramp launch. I am looking into a tilt trailer but the $85,000 price tag is keeping me from pulling the trigger. I thought I read that Miss Bud was allowed to run this year?
