Trailering to location is a given, for any boat not in a slip or at your water front home .. 3 choices BTDT 3 different ways..
Rigging for day sailing.. Boat is ready.. its a day sail, not an Exploratory Voyage with Magellan!!!
Sail is on boom at worst in its sail-cover and in cabin.... I have traveled with the sail and boom ready to rock and roll..still attached to the mast...
Get out of TRUCK.. ( no overhead obstructions) mast winch is already there. unstrap winch hook to mast lift.. Mast.. takes a few minutes.. attach fore-stay.. Insert key in ignition squeeze bulb for fuel get off boat.. Back boat into water.. backing is 3 minutes max..
This should, in time become... 1 2 3 4 done.. I see a lot of issues at boat ramps!!! OMG!!!! Too Funny!! For the love ! Take the boat to (walmart) at midnight and practice backing up.. Take it to the local school at night and Practice putting that bad boy in a slot!
First time I EVER Backed my boat in , Bill from Bills Boats 4 sail was with me.. It was literally a S curve . Bill was a little concerned.. Rich do you need help? No way dude badabingbadabang in the slot and off the trailer..
