Course Outline

Propeller wash can erode the sediment just beyond the ramp surface, creating a large hole. The eroded sediment is deposited behind the propeller, creating a mound. Trailer tires can get stuck in these holes, and pleasure craft can run aground on the mound. Instead of power loading, use the trailer's winch to load your pleasure craft.
