I've read many posts from the UK regarding the appearant difficulty in finding or paying for a launch ramp. In the US and certainly in the Caribbean, boat ramps are considered to be a necessity for the public and are provided by the government, especially in the islands. There is rarely if ever a fee, usually fishing licenses and boating registration fees contribute to their construction and upkeep.
When I consider the fact that we get free launch ramps yet health insurance is an impossibility for about half the population and you get health insurance but can't afford to launch your boats, I have to laugh.
What a planet.
If you make me King, I will decree free public launch access for every subject in my Kingdom. Anything else you want
