    Nothing special required they have it there for you.
    The setup they have is similiar to what Trujillios had years ago. Basically you hook a shackle that has a cable attached to your bow eye and then hook the other end of the cable to your trailer and pull your boat up the tidal mud riverbank into an aluminum cradle type deal that has UHMW plastic on the bottom portion.
    Back your trailer up and winch the boat straight onto the trailer. If the ramp is busy common practice is to hook the cable to the trailer leaving ahead of you and then you pull up the next guy and so on.
    They do have a large pipe mounted in the ground that the cable will slide on as you go around the corner and up the hill if you need a longer pull to get your boat to the top on low tide days. A good spotter is real nice to have and make sure you don't have anything hanging out the side or it will catch on the cradle side rails.
    it really is a simple and painless deal all around.
    Checkout the pictures of it in the gallery on their website. http://www.kasilofriverlodge.com/fishing.htm

    An important tip when pulling your drift boat out at the Kasilof Cabins is to make sure your oars are taken out of the oar locks, and nothing is hanging out the side of the boat because it can catch on the guides at the top of the hill and break.

    Tekotas are probably the most valued reel on the Kenai for King Salmon.

    fishing isn't about life or death... it's more important than that.
