    Default Havasu launch ramps

    Can anyone explain the ramps and the pros/cons of each. I know Windsor gets packed, LH Marina is expensive and has some strict rules.....what is "site 6" all about? If it is free why is it not the preferred place to launch/retrieve?

    Curious...who knows the scoop?

    Just go to site six, you will be fine...... haha j/k Yes it is free, but there are some morons there. I've litterally almost got ran over by a giant bayliner. I had chunks of the boat's fiberglass in my boat to prove it. Personally I'd just pay and use windsor.

    ohhhhhh boy.....this could take a bit....I will try to shorten it up.....
    If your boat is loud....no marina...
    if you are scared of crowds and don't have 4x4.....no site six(also long walk for parking and about 4-5 hours to retrieve)
    windsor south ramp is short...with you boat use the nort....it fills up quick tho b there by 9 on regular weekend and 7-8 on holidays.....(I have launched at 6am and sat in line to get in.....by far the best deal in town if you ask me

    Yeah site 6 is free but good luck getting your boat out really steep launch ramp I've always had good luck at the Marina easy to get in and out of, and at site 6 you have all the A$$hole gawkers looking and laughing at you instead of giving you a hand. Did site 6 once with a 21' and it was a pain in the ass to get out of there never went back after that

    with your boat there is only one place I would launch, I have to say as much as I dislike Windsor I would never launch anyplace else with your boat. You will obviously have to be on the north side and just stay away from the first two or three lanes closest to the lake.

    and its not a level playing field, but that will not effect the cat trailer too much anyway I guess.

    We always stay at the Nautical Inn which has its own launch ramp and you can leave your boat in the water on their beach all weekend. Never seen more than 3 in line at the ramp.
