This may sound stupid..... but how do you "drive" your RIB onto that? also any idea the pricing?

Thanks

Basically to get your boat or rib onto the pontoon you bring the bow up slowly to the V shaped float, then gently power on so the boat slides up onto the pontoon. You cannot over shoot the dock as your leg stops against the floats preventing you going too far.

To get your rib off then engage reverse, this then pushes water up the V channel, in theory lubricating the pontoon and your hull, then the hull releases from the pontoon and the boat comes off the pontoon entirely under its own power.

Some larger boats may need an additional back winch which pushes the rib off the pontoon. Using a back winch, the customer with the Chrisscraft likes to winch his boat right up onto the dock so he can clean behind it.
To get it off we use a back winch method which basically is a continuous piece of rope through to pulleys either side of the pontoon positioned approximately 2m towards the stern of the boat.

You place one of the lines over the bow eye of the boat and attach the other line to the winch, as you wind the winch in on that line it then shortend the line over the bow eye and gradually pushes the boat off the pontoon.

Hopefully the piccy below will explain it a bit easier.
