I have almost always used a tilt trailer but I rarely see anyone else use one these days. I know mine is almost 50 years old but consider that irrelevant. I realise modern boats have generally become more highly powered and of course the larger ones can be driven on; but there are still many with smaller motors that won't do that job. With the tilt I don't have to be so deep into the water and it makes winching on easier too if you boat is on the heavier side. Because of the medical issues I have for years used an electric winch and the tilt again makes it easier on the winch. Any thoughts or ideas? Noel.
