My wife and I launched the sailboat in our little lake. There's a good sized parking lot above the boat ramp. We set up the mast and rigging in the parking lot, then I backed it down to the boat ramp. One of the fishermen at the boat ramp was all impressed. He didn't know the mast came down. He thought I drove it all the way from town with the mast up. Duh.
Now I realize there aren't a lot of sailboats around here, but my 4 year old grandkids could have figured it out.
