Best ramp for big boats

2 posts in this topic

Just wondering which ramp is best that being all of them are open. We have always used a smaller(14ft) boat but would like to bring a bigger(17ft/150hp) one if it would work?

Thanks in advance!

We have launched a 17.5'/115hp at Birchdale, Frontier, and Vidas and done OK on all of them. Birchdale is the best, Frontier is the worst(better since new concrete 2 yrs.ago), and you need to be carefull not to drop your trailer wheels off the end of Vidas with the low water.

Be carefull and use your head and you should be fine. Have seen much bigger boats use them all.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
