I never realised that would be an advantage as I have a roller coaster so it goes on very easily.
I find it is better to have the winch post level with the roller coaster as its easy to winch the rib on. When you launch it on the winch friction brake in shallow water having the winch lower helps to keep the bow down and the stern up. I only dip the tyres in the water and never the rims or trailer frame. Hopefully it may last a bit longer.
So I go for the down and out approach
