You got the picture up

So do you use a rope connected to a vehicle to pull it back up the beach? How do you move the dolly to the launch location? Do you leave the dolly in the water while you are out boating/diving? You are lucky to have such a protected mild sloping beach to launch from. Where is that cove?

That is one protected cove. I wish we had something like that, although we do have tidal rivers mouths.

Google earth isn't very good for the ocean yet along that stretch of coast. Mostly looks like beaches. I would assume you dive further offshore? Orford Reef looks like a nice spot. What is the vis typically?

Vis is anywhere from 2-20'. You never know what your going to get. I have dove near shore at port orford. I have not made it to the reef. Orford and blanco reef are difficult to access. No launch at the port. They sling boats in and out with a crane. Sport boats are last priority and the port is a long ride. With the beach dolly it is about a 20 minute ride. Simpson reef is about that distance south from sunset bay
