Ha, yes that could be the answer. I'm sure you posted tongue in cheek but beach launching a smallish rib (under 5m) is something I am thinking about. Wonder how big a rib or weight a quad could handle on a beach?

I bought an X trail recently which helps a lot with dragging back up the beach but I still daren't take it down to the waterline at low water.

I'm looking at replacing the trailer tyres and jockey wheel with balloon type wheels and unhitching the trailer before pushing but still not totally convinced this will work. Work in progress on this one for me...

Well I've been toying with the idea a long time I pulled my quicksilver 500 about a tonne and a quarter up a gravel track in a farm yard on quite an incline with a farm quad very impressed it never missed a beat and the farm buoys drag all sorts around through some pretty rough Terain.
Plus my lad bought a kids 100 cc quad and the power is also impressive.
But I was thinking of converting a rotovator the ones with tractor wheels on,get rid of the tines and fix a a tow hitch they are slow ish but saves pulling and tugging we will see.

Cheers

quad

used a Yamaha big bear for years to launch 3 seater jet ski and my mates 3.6m rib no probs if trailer got stuck used a rope and pulled at 90 degree to it releasing one wheel and out it came wouldn't use a 2wd though as with weight on back axel tends to make them dig in also least tread on tyres the better as loads of grip the dig themselves In I also tried the mower route not enough grunt and also 2wd no good on sand avoid Chinese copy quads loads of prob don't like water an salt coverd yam with waxoyl lasted years
