    Yes, if the trolley is made to fit the boat you just float the boat over the trolley until it is in the right forward/back position and tie off a line from the bows to the trolley. Then just pull the trolley up the beach or ramp and the boat will settle into the right position as it comes out of the water.

    Even with my 25 foot sport fishing boat that I just sold I used the same technique and never needed a winch on the trailer. It did need a tractor to pull it up the beach though :)

    Jones and his wife made a lot of crossings in very small boats! I don't think he is preminent when one thinks of all the names, but he is certainly inspirational.

    Yes the boat will be kept on shore in a boat house. Leaving a boat in the water overnight in the Philippines without a security guard is asking for it to be stripped of anything useful.
