And there's a technique to getting the Dory into the water that isn't so easy. When I first got the Typhoon, I was mystified as to how this trailer was going to help me launch this 2000 pound day sailor. I just could not get my car far enough into the water to float the dory off into the lake. After a long discussion with the manufacturer and many phone calls, and over 8 months of haggling, I finally got my 8 foot extension. Voila, the answer!
This video is a fun little example of how I haul out the dory. You can imagine the splash is the same as the haul-out, in reverse. I'm using music from the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, back in the day they were the rage. And they seemed appropriate for this little portrayal. View full screen, and select to view in HD:
