  1. Launching a boat with a side by side

    PB Open Water
    Has or does anyone do this. I own a 4x4 gator which i use to launch my jet ski's. Oh, I'll be launching my 18ft. jet, and it's not on a ramp. Basically just off a grass/dirt area into the lake. More less curious if it will work or do i need to consider other options.
  2. Golf cart for launching?

    Jet Boats
    Do any of you guys use a gas cart for launching your race boat from dolly trailer? or is it just to heavy? I figure its to heavy for a golf cart on a steep-wet ramp, just wanted to see if anyone was getting away with it.
  3. More Control of the Boats Launching

    Jet Boats
    March 7, 2014 Hello People, Looking at my data from various races, I see there is a lot of room for more improvement in controlling launch of the boat. I understand there are many ways to control the launch from using rpm controllers to time elapsed before full throttle kicks in. The...

  6. launching boat with Rhino

    Jet Boats
    I have a 20ft Carrera Eclipse do you think I can launch with a Rhino? Ramp is ok not to steep. I've seen guys with small race boats with dolly trailers use a Rhino, you guys think my boat is too heavy? Trying to not drive my truck back and forth...

  11. Lake Mohave Launching???

    PB Open Water
    I’m goin to Lake Mohave over the weekend. The last time we boated on Lake Mohave was a nightmare at the launch ramp. They need to give lessons for launching and retrieving your boat. When I was there last (10yrs ago), the ramp had enough room to launch 6 boats. I was 10th in line, two people...

  14. launching at Discovery park this weekend

    NorCal
    The water is very low and there are some submerged obstacles, possibly a car at the end of the west dock. There may be something in the center of the launch area also. Be very careful guys. As far as I can tell, the east dock is the best place to launch, but I would recommend watching for a...
