snap the chain link into the bow eye before driving off or it might go back into the oggin or onto the concrete and then you'll get a parking ticket cos of the yellow lines Also ensure car is in forward gear cos it ain't arf embarresing if you back the wheels over the edge

Hairy....
I think a snipe easy launch or (AKA brake back trailer) might be a good bit of kit here.

Iv'e not used mine yet as it was seized when i got it, but its free now. just waiting for the right conditions to give it a try.

oo-er thats a while (and a couple of boats ) back.
Break back trailers are no advantage at Knott End, we've had them over the years on various boats, more of a hindrance than anything. Handy on the beach with the tractor though.

Oh well, i stand corrected and bow to experience.

How far did the transom have left out the water as a matter of interest ? not an angle i would like to be sitting at when the local jet ski lads bow wave me to death at my slipway
