There will be no crane, so local volunteers will help out-of-town boats who need assistance to ramp launch and retrieve. If your trailer cannot be used for retrieval, or worse, your trailer cannot even be used for launching, the hoist in the club work area can be used to swap your boat to a local trailer for launching, or from a local trailer back to your trailer immediately after retrieval.
