Im hoping someone can help me with this issue I have where my driveway and garage meet. This area has a "curb" about 2" in height. This, plus the slope of my driveway is making putting my boat absolute hell. I am looking for a solution to this issue and figured I simply could not be the first with this problem. I am thinking about making a concrete ramp to get a gradual incline into my garage but that is going to take some work, just wondering if anyone has a solution that might work.

Thanks

You can get grinding wheel for a hand held grinder just grind it down so it looks like a ramp

Here's a thought. I assume you are talking about pushing the boat in? If so, I'm sure you can get the tires in,,but have trouble getting the winch wheel up. If so, put a second winch on the trailer. Put it further back on the trailer. Once the original makes contact with the lip, winch up the other one, and it will already be over the lip. That might be easier than building a ramp. If it's the trailer tires which are tough, build a ramp, or grind it down.

If you are talking about the rise/lip from the garage floor from the driveway simply lay a fence picket down. That will be a huge help.
