It's an idea I will leave it to cleverer people than me to work out how you get round having electrics/servos etc attached to the trailer where they will probably get wet.
Done that, the winch was in the back of the van along with all the electrics. Easy and worked perfect as long as it was a smooth slip. Nightmare on cobbles though.

A berth in a marina.
That way you can "save" money by not purchasing, wheels, funny trailers etc.
And.......and you can just jump on your boat anytime and whizz off. this saves all the heartache and bother of launching.

Mind you.........you would need to anti-foul, pull out a couple of times per year, scrape hull, re-anti-foul............

OK maybe launching is better.
