Incredible way of...

Dude is letting his boat into water on amazing situation. I think this is not so healthy for one your boat, two your trailer. What do you guys think about it? Don't he want to pay for a slipway?

Keeps the wheels dry

Have done similar myself but not with a Rib, works better if you drop the wheels over the edge. Recovery is a bitch though. Hauled the boat out onto the bank with the LR then dry recovered boat onto trailler.

I can anderstand it perfectly! Don't know why but government policy is to decrease the number of places for launching your boat. At every water-side
they dump bricks and rocks to protect the river-shores and I think also to prevent launching.
In Rotterdam for instance there is no slipway at all. Nearest point is Alblasserdam.
Furthermore I don't mind to pay for something where there is a counter effort but prices like 15 or 20 euros in a harbour just for using only ones(!) the slip is a bit too maddening for me!
Launching your rib the way like the picture shows isn't a big problem. That is, as long as your boat is not too heavy, say up to 5m. It just needs some muscles!

Do not do this if your boat weighs more than a 5m Humber!!!! I am speaking from experience!!!
