Ais a ramp into the water for launching a boat. Sometimes referred to as "boat ramps", "boat landings" or "boat launches".
They are typically simply a concrete ramp at the end of an access road or track into the water. The boat owner backs a vehicle with a boat trailer down the ramp until the trailer is in the water and floats the boat off.
Larger boat ramps may include winding gear and cranes for handling larger vessels that might be trucked in.
