Me I do from just right down my bed up to a trolley, downstairs 20 steps, 200m pulling. Engine by using a modified Rooteq trolley. And so.
Just once a year, but I moor for 30 days.
Hehhehehhhe. Crack my back. Never mind.
The problem is not space, but handling.

Two trips from the car to launch no probs, Engine started from new
on second pull of the cord. but then motor cut out after 30 mins on several occasions but did re start ok. This put me off - maybe a Honda would be more reliable.
Have started using a electric outboard which is good. However our Angling and rowing friends (rowing forwards blind) do not appreciate the clean quiet technology ! My craft is registered with EA but why did no one mention that certain Scullers appear to demand right of way on the Bedford Ouse !
