Ramps for landing a boat?

Recommended Posts

My brother and I have a lake place and are lucky enough to be able to load/unload our boats on our property. We both own 17 to 19ft Alumacraft boats and when we load we sink quite a bit into the lake. Does anyone know of any sort of ramps that could be put into the water to give us more a more stable footing? I have seen some metal type ramps at some resorts that are older and have been in the water for a long time but seem to work. We know that there are some ATV type ramps that might work too.

We have called some dock places and the ones we've called don't have anything that would work.

Any ideas would be great.

Thanks

I don't have any expertise on the subject, but just be careful and make sure you follow all the environmental laws when placing things in the water. Good luck. I know the resort we go to just added a bunch of rock, but their landing gets a ton of use so I am sure you don't to go through that much hassle.

We are really thinking of whatever we do to make it removeable/temporary. I know with regs I doubt we would get permission for anything perm.

I would look at a piece of fensing or something like that like for around a baseball park or the things that they drag the baseball parks with those are pretty sturdy and I think would help hold you up

20 foot long 2 X 10 plank with non-stick tape on it. They would float until you pushed them under the trailer wheels at shore.

Find some Marsden Matting/Pierced Steel Planking. It's the 15"x10' steel mats that the Army and Navy used to make landing strips in WW2. There are places on the web that carry them. Search pierced steel planking.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
