OP: If you get the trailer deep enough so as the rib floats most of the way on you should not have a problem.


We have to launch our club safety rib this way due to the slip, this must be done several hundred times a year, both launch and recovery.

Those that hook on and winch up....

...are you doing this in strong tide from the side?

Or gentle conditions?

We launch & recover from the beach, when we recover the conditions are usually calm with no side currents or strong tides. Many years ago we use to launch/recover from Conway estuary and that is brutal tidal and we basically did the same but the trailer was attached to our tow vehicle, if you go in too deep with the trailer the boat will float off with the current

I have vicious side tide to worry about making motoring onto trailer the preferred option.

Docking poles on order.

Plus am a newbie which doesn't help (we all need to start somewhere, right?), but that will soon change with practice. :-)

Try and watch what others do for launching & recovery where you are going to launch/recover you will soon see what is the most convenient way to get your boat back on the trailer
