Sorry I meant setting it up, I leave it setup on the trailer for transportation, I use the transom wheels and handball it when launching as I do not want to risk my 22ft 3.5t Motorhome with 2.5 td front wheel drive on a greasy slip
would make a good YouTube moment
You are right about the engine acting as a counterballance though it is alot easier with the 25hp on the transom, as long as I go very slowly down the slip as it can run away with you very quickly
