    I've never seen a ramp in NJ where the end wasn't undercut by the currents. It has little if anything to do with people powerloading. Just don't be stupid and let your wheels go off the end of the ramp.

                I can do this with my 21, its just a matter of velocity []

                    • Funny topic. Power loading only makes sense when you have two or more people on the boat. I often fish alone and power loading wont get you out of the water any faster then just winching it on the trailer. You still have to dock the boat...go get the truck... back the trailer down the ramp....get out of the truck....drive or pull the boat up to the trailer and then latch it to the winch.

                      People need to have a little patience at the ramp. I don't like waiting around any more then the next guy but some people are beginners and are learning about boating etc.... what gets me is the guys that are getting all their stuff ready in the boat while blocking the ramp [V]

                          • I am usually by myself or with one other person. I use a roller trailer with both my 224 and our 17 Key West in Florida. Technique is the same. Back the trailer down just short of the hubs going under. I powerload to within a foot of the winch stand then leave the boat in gear with just enough throttle so it doesn't roll back. Then I run up front, lean over the bow and attach the winch cable. Crank it tight. Then I go shut the motor off. Jump over the side attach the chain shackle to the boat and winch it up the last foot. I'm gone and out of the way in minutes before most have even figured out how to back down the ramp in a strait line.
