I need to see you unload there. I do not recall seeing a drift boat launch from there come to think of it. I think I want to go UHD on my bunks.

Haven't launched at abbotts in a long while. Got real sick of the abbotts to Medlock stretch. If it's dead low tide I don't think I can float off but any higher and it will if I remember correctly

Just find a spot and build your own.

So I'm pretty sure they got that boat there in a trailer. Seems like they could've eased it down on the winch?

That wouldn't make as big a splash.

Funny, I was just thinking how they need to drop a few tons of gravel at Medlock launch. My boat and trailer bounce a foot in the air when launching/taking out. I guess it’s not that bad after all

I've seen many a Ranger/Skeeter bounce on the ramp because of this....

Given the amount of traffic that go through those ramps, really surprised that they don't keep them in better shape.
