That lande will p-SS that slipway no problem but you can't beat precaution so long as you've got low stretch rope, makes a mess of the rear window when it breaks.

If you watch the rear vehicle (Micks&#128540 you can see it sliding down the slip, no traction whatsoever, it was as snotty as hell.

I have never seen such dangerous boat ramp ...
Can I have "newbie" question please (do not laugh)

1. How did you maneuver trailer when wheels had not any traction at all
2. Was it possible to use one car and long rope ? I have not idea how to steering trailer in such case also but I saw thread that some people use such method here (on RIB.net)

Nice area and nice pictures.
Long trip (for me I have never did daily longer trip than 160km)

You are experience and brave people to use such slip !!!

Its much easier recovering than launching with a rope and keeping control. With small boats you can do it though (I've used a munter hitch on a big caribener attached to the car as an anchor - as then you can see what is happening etc). You can't steer it though so everything needs to be in a straight line.

Thanks Polly.
There were my thoughts (that launching is not easy).
Generally (for me) it was challenge not the trip.

It have to be really good rope. Not idea how much weight Land but it can be even 2500 kg + boat (lets say 1500 kg).

I can imagine that until end of the slip the first one car could managed to launch.
But on the end of the slip Land over the hill keeps everything on the rope.

Finally everything have finish with success so can I ask for AIS/GPS trace where have you been ?
And a few more pictures please (not this slip anymore - the Sea and nature pls)
