  1. I have on for my jon boat. I have not had to use it yet. I am however wondering in what situation is a tilt trailer needed?

    they are great for un-improved shallow ramps. i had one for years and all i needed to do was to back in till the water is up to the axel and dump it in

    i have one sitting in my garage with a 16' sylvan on it right now. i used it one time and will never do that again. launching was pretty easy providing you raised the motor up all the way(i didnt:confused: ), but when i tried to put the boat back on the trailer, that was a different story. nope, that was the last time i ever pulled that pin. a smaller boat it might be different.
