    Has any one launched a boat using an X into salt walter?

    I'm wondering if this would be a "bad thing"

    Or with a bit of a rinse afterwards it would be ok.

    If trailer has long enough tongue on it, it would not be an issue as you would not need to back into the water, however, I would not recommend backing that size vehicle too far into the water, ice or electric, and you will definitely want all-wheel drive.
