At our old house we had an inclined drive which backed on to a turning area .
so didnt want the o/b - prop being the first place of contact with the local grannies turning and wanted to park her bow in which also meant that any rain water would go out through the transom drain the rather then fill up the bow .

I braught a 12v remote operated winch which i replaced the hand winch on the trailer to also make it easier to launch - retrieve single handed on the slip and used the block on the winch post of the trailer so i could pull the trailer in to the drive and also still use for recovering the boat once it was un-cliped .

I made a simple eye bolt and fixed it through the garage wall with a steel plate to spread the load

it made everything so simple as often i was doing it all single handed

That is a fantastic bit of kit

I fancy building one of those.
