    My favourite place to sail is a freshwater dam with a very long and steep ramp (when the levels are low).

    Has anyone modded the trolley so that they can drive the boat to the water? I dont think I can pull the boat and trolley up the ramp manually. We dont have any shore access for the trolleys.

      I’m not aware of anyone hitching it to the car but I have seen a rotating front wheel added between the v of the trolley frame which would allow you to haul it or winch it up.

      An alternative (if you have something to tie a pulley to) is to run a rope from the trolley up the slope to the pulley and around it. Then use your weight to pull the boat up.

      Hope this helps
