I can't retrieve my boat within 2 hours of dead low at that ramp. Mine's on bunks but is a deep vee. I asked this board about a month ago for ramp suggestions for low tide. A ramp in Somers Point and Nob's in Avalon were recommended. Haven't used either yet since tides weren't a factor the last few trips down. Here's the link to that thread.http://www.thebassbarn.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=004478#000000

o.c. ramp isnt a problem at low tide....as long as you dont mind a little water in the cab of your truck!! float off trailers are not a good thing at o.c. at low tide

ramps - can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em!
I stopped by all seasons the other day - the ramp's fine but i got the impression from talking to them that parking (with the trailer) is a problem - not a lot of room - although i have seen folks park outside the gate from time to time - daytime, of course.
i'm hoping things will get a little more relaxed once we get into sept/oct/nov.
again, thanks for the ramp info folks.

Absecon ramp is good in all conditions. You just need to know where to navigate the channels. I haven't been down there this year but if you go to www.abseconbay.com you can find out some up to date info.

There is a ramp at the top of the Tuckahoe river that is good at low tides. Only problem is that it takes about 20 minutes just to get to the power plant and I beleive you need to get a permit to use the ramp. I think the fee is like $15.00
