I used to own a jet skl rental business on the beach in galveston...had a 4 pack trailer that I had to get deep enough to slide the skis off....not as easy as it sounds. My trailer had a removeable tongue...I made a 10' extension out of some sq tubing to give me more distance. HUGE PIA. Not to mention..if you sit in one spot too long in moving water at the beach....you will be stucker than chuck in NO time. The surf aint no place to be stuck either. I finally got smart and bought a launch caddy designed for the beach..made life alot easier.
