i don't think you would have much trouble actually launching....i know dad used to launch a 16ft bass tracker there years ago, but like you said in lower water situations, this could be dangerous, i do know there are channels there, that if not familiar with, could tear a boat up quick. the ramp isn't real steep, but its not flat either. in the end you know about how shallow your boat runs, and your abilities, just understand that low water is dangerous, and high water also means fast current. i've fished this stretch since i was a kid and i have seen a boat flood over there before. basically proceed at your own risk and with extreme caution.
