"Thanks Ian :) I’ve found a boat ramp or two that would be wide enough by a foot or two depending on the beam I choose but Tangaraos and Tiki 38’s don’t seem launchable from any sort of trailer. As I’m on a lake (Lake Erie) I…"

"Thanks Robert. In my asking around at the marinas and yacht clubs in Cleveland I haven’t found any yet but I’m looking. You are around Boston? I’m looking for cat owners around Cleveland for advice. I haven’t seen any…"

Launch Options?

Hello All,I am looking at a Tangaroa Mk4 or Narai Mk4 build to launch in Lake Erie and eventually sail to the Atlantic but am not finding any lifts that can handle cats here around Cleveland. Are there any alternative ways to launch? I began with interest in a Tiki 30, which would have been much easier but I’m concerned it would feel a bit small on longer trips.Thanks for any thoughts!See More
