Offloading your Hobie Cat at Fort Lauderdale beach

There is a public boat ramp and offloading sport for sailing craft only at Fort Lauderdale beach. This wooden ramp is prone to splintering so beware!

You are allowed 30 minutes to offload your boat and trailer and then you have to move your car and park it elsewhere. If you leave it unattended on the boat ramp it will be ticketed.

You can push your trailer off the wooden boat ramp and leave it there for the day, until its time to pack up and remove your Hobie Cat
