Avoiding emersions

Why not use a towbar extension???

Take it easy ....but, take it all the way.

because the launch point is a long shallow beach and it would need to be at least about 30 feet long at some states of the tide. there are some occasions when i'm able to launch here without getting the motor wet, if the tides quite high, because the slip is steep at the top, but once its at the bottom, the gradient on the beach is very slight and i have to go in atleast 10 metres to give me enough water to give me the 12 - 18 inches of depth I need to push the boat into. Its safe enough because of the rock underneath, so the motor dont sink, but getting it wet is inevitable.

The important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice that which we are for what we could become. (& then get the RIB out !)
