Any one got one? The drive-on ones look cool.

There is one in my local harbour -Burry Port - and if it will survive the swell there it will survive anywhere - most impressive.

It had a big American style wakeboarding boat on it - prob about 25' - now there is a small RIB - about 5.5m that looks quite lost.

Got it, love it

currently berth 2 RS Vision sailing dinghies and a Rigiflex on it (15HP), as time goes on we will store RIBs on it as well.

Love it, I was toying with the idea of building one from aluminium angle and some plastic barrels!

Regards

I have a jetski on one they are very popular and easy to get on and off. There are a few boats on them at my local marina but look a bit of a mission to get on and off, they use winches...

Loads of pics here

I think the winch is just to pull you off the first bit until the prop has some bite. No reason why you cant drive on
