I've been thinking about building the Annapolis Wherry and was wondering if anyone who has one could comment on their experiences transporting it.
I have a pickup truck so I can't envision cartopping it so that pretty much means a trailer. However, I like the idea of launching this craft at locations that may not have a boat ramp ... has anyone tried carrying this baby on their own into the water? At nearly 18' in length and 65 lbs (plus the weight of the rowing unit), it seems it may be a bit ungainly for one person to handle? Plus, with the rowing unit riggers sticking out, that may make it even more awkward for one person to handle. I like the idea of just taking the boat out on a whim without having to go to an established (and probably crowded) boat ramp and without needing assistance to get it into the water. Is this realistic? Thanks!
