What happened to the takeout just lower than the one in the photos? Always been there in years past. Located in an eddy just below one in photos. The one in the photos has always been steeper. All of us taking out in the spring used the downstream "ramp". Never had traditional trailer access but massive J-rigs were being derigged along with our 18' bucket boat.

Is that one gone now?

the lower takeout is still there but there is tons of debris and it is a worse mud flat and cut bank than the steep one. I wondered why they didnt just maintain that one.

Its the one i would still use from the photos.....

There was always mud and debris there.

It took us less than 2 hours for 2 of us to derig an 18' bucket boat there in the spring. Really not much harder than derigging at the Swasey Ramp full of people on any given takeout day. But we never trailer our raft inflated anyways.....guess I don't have that to compare to.

I have launched sea kayaks there and derigged there for a decade now and it has remained about the same. Never pleasant but useable.

It was impressive to watch the teamwork of the crew dismantling the J-Rig.....
