Default Garrards Landing Ramp

Has anyone successfully backed a trailer down to recover a boat? Looks kinda tight.

There are a couple of posts locked into the asphalt going down the ramp to prevent it from being used by trailered boats. About the only thing it's good for is putting in or taking out a canoe or a kayak and carrying it up the ramp to your vehicle.

I was there today and didn't see any, drove my truck straight to the water. Just looked real tight for a trailer and didn't want to try it and fail. The sign said non motorized vessels only, but they clearly weren't thinking of drift boat trailers when they built it. It just looks like you may be able to get a trailer back there but if you can it'd be close. Just figured someone's tried.

The mud is the deal killer for anyone using the ramp.
Get to your vehicle with everything covered in muck and no wash facility available. Waste of money on that one.
