Sorry, I try to keep posts short, but sometimes they become too vague.
So, situation is as follows-
We would like to upgrade to a wakeless (or any suggested similar launch/coaching vehicle) so we can keep up with crews and be better able to rescue in case of emergency.
We currently have a 12 foot john boat that we use as a launch. We drag it up and down the hill to our gated area (our boathouse is on a hill out of necessity.) every time we want to use it for whatever reason. We don't have a boat ramp nearby. We can't keep the boat moored near the rowing dock as it will get stolen in short order, despite how we might tie it down. If anyone knows of a bulletproof locking mechanism, we could maybe consider this option.
The question was, does anyone keep their boat stored on land and launch it every practice from the rowing dock.
I think I know the answer that it is not practical, nor reasonable, but I figured maybe someone on here had some good ideas on how to make it work, or maybe a suggestion for a better boat that would leave less of a wake and be good to rescue people.
