    After owning several different boats over the last 25 years I have finally found one that suits me the best. Lund Alaskan tiller. Deep V, flat floor front to back, plenty of room, very stable, high gunnels, soft ride, very little if any spray, can handle just about any reasonable condition. YMMV.

    I have a friend that has a deep v boat that I really like, but he seem to have to get in the water a lot when he loads it. Is that normal with all alum. boats? I am to old for that. Fishing out of a 1994 Ranger 354 now.

    I've never had a problem My trailer is a bunk model. When I am by myself I launch with the boat on a rope and pull it up to the ramp and tie off while I park. Don't worry to much about scratching the bottom.

    Hatt55 - no, it's not normal for aluminum boats. Should be able to launch, when solo, like rockhitter said.

    When I load the boat I idle up to the ramp or off to the side and nose it up on solid ground. I then step out the front and go get the trailer and back in. Then I hop back in the boat and push off with an oar, fire up the motor and drive it one the trailer. Reach over the front and attach the winch. Step out on the trailer frame and winch the boat on. Another method for loading is after you have the trailer in the water and the boat nosed up on the bank, attach a rope, give the boat a push back, let it go back past the end of the trailer and pull it back up on the trailer with the rope. My Lund Alaskan has a flat floor front to rear, no raised deck [picked this model on purpose for the flat floor] so getting in and out of the boat is very easy. I usually sit my butt on the small front nose base and swing my legs over the side. Reverse order for getting back in. I am 64 years old and have bad knees, this set up works well for me.
