    Default Dropping a jon boat when there's no boat ramp?

    Hello. I'm not sure if I'm in the right sub but I'll give this a try.
    For work I have to drop a jon boat in an isolated lake, problem is there is muck of a 1 or 2 feet deep that's about 20 feet out so I can't back into the water with the trailer. This is really the only access point. Does anyone know of any equipment I can lay out there to help me?
    Thanks

    As you cant drive to the water you'll need to slide your boat to the water. Maybe a modular floating pontoon such as the follwing could be an answer

    If its a small one on a trailer, then either a 'breakback' trailer or re route the winch cable over the rearmost roller then back to the bow - hence the winch will act to pull the boat off the trailer.
    Only reverse in a short distance.
