    with a dock it's easy, with no dock access if you want to do it safely use a winch post ladder. I have an adjustable step on mine you can see in the pic. I step up on the tire then on the step and climb over. As you can see my ramp has no dock access right next to it. The town dock has great ramps and docks.

          Was there another guy? I am too easily distracted I guess.
          On further review, yes, you are right. I think some of them might have had a crashing headache the next day. I am surprised none of them went overboard.

        Like most other I back in just to the point were I almost cover the over the tires. From there I start the engine and warm it up. Then I put it forward gear to remove the tension on the chain. (I find that once the back starts to float the chain get tight). Once the chain is off, I go back to neutral and my dock hand releases the winch and is able to lower the boat in he water. My boat only goes back about 2 feet. Then he releases the cable, I put it in reverse and back off the trailer.
        now to load I put the trailer in the depth to the top of the fenders and drive the boat on to the trailer. I power up to the rollers and my deck attaches the chain and cable then snugs it up. Shut everything down on the boat, raise the out drive and pull it out of the water and attache my transom straps.

        This process works well for me and the rank is not steep. The ramp is also narrow with boats moored behind the ramp. It allows for slow and and easy launch with lots of control.
