Nope, i won't do it!

tempted to get an extension for the Ballistic, if repositioning and unseizing a couple of the rollers doesn't work.

That's a relief Nos, I always take a rope and push the trailer in and float the boat on/off then pull the trailer out until I can get the car hitched on dry !!! Bit of a faff but it's a 4 wheel trailer so balance is pretty good.
I dread to think what some of these cars look like after a couple of years.......

I suspect a lot of the ones we see being dunked are company or contract hire cars.

I once saw some kids drive Daddy's Disco in up to the top of the wheels to jumpstart an old rib. I was cringeing.
