i got a 50' rope, I attach it to the front of the boat and take it to the drivers door, I back it the rest of the way in and hold the rope while the boat floats off, i get out and pull it off to the side around the trailer and i am launched.

bugpack i kinda do the same thing , i fish by my self a lot . i make a loop and drop it over my winch post . i spray my bunks with silicone and it slides real easy , just back up when its good just hit the brakes for a second to get it movin and it slides right off . had a fellow ' help' me one time. i got in the boat told him to back slow and not to hit the brakes till the motor was in the water , man he was movin kinda fast ... hit the brakes that thing slid off 10 ft from the water . kinda feel silly with the motor on the concrete and the bow 10 ft in the air . sure got some looks that day

I added these guide ons with lights. Either with or without lights it would help a bunch. Mine has the lights, helps light up the ramp in the dark also when the brakes are applied.
Also when backing up, use the bottom of the steering wheel to back up, not the top. If you need to turn left then turn the wheel to the left, if you need to turn right then turn it to the right, that way works great for me.
