Broome boat launch

 Hey Guys, thinking of taking the Coraline to Broome for 8days. I have an extendable drawbar but not sure it's enough for the big tides for beach launching in Broome. Not at all keen on getting my Cruiser wet. Any Broome fishos with local knowledge launching 6m boats, like to hear your views.

Good luck & enjoy......

Beach launch at our piss poor excuse for boat facilities will be no problem at entrance point or on tides higher than 5 mtr the slipway. Give me a pm if you come up and I can fill you in on the do's and don't as its easy to screw up in not experienced.

 Drop down spare and a long strap is more useful than an extendable drawbar there. 


Does anyone know where the love of god goes, when the waves turn the minutes to hours?
