Add a floating tow vehicle, then no parking fees. And no backing on the ramp just drive in, and go.

It would bee cool if you could unhook it from the car and paddle around on it. I assume the spare tire on the front will keep the "bow" of your "floating trailer boat" from hitting the bottom?
You're always thinking BOAT. That's what I like about you.

Yea, just float the trailer under the boat and then tie it off. Motor up to the ramp and attach to the tow vehicle and you're done. Why didn't I think of this? :D
