    Anyone launch their boats off a trailer? I visited and waded my local ramp and it is steep with neck deep water pretty close in. I have a trailer tongue extension as well. Four wheel drive V8 truck.

    I have. It is an interesting ride on a short, steep ramp! I had a 24 foot extension, complete with a large wheel to support the tongue weight. I found that launching, while nerve-wracking, was possible. I had a heck of a time pulling the boat out of the water though. By the time the trailer is deep enough to float on, it is next to impossible to line the boat up with it.
