With your brakes set up correctly and properly adjusted they should lock up the wheels with moderate foot much more braking do you need? A coversion to TE type drums may help as they are larger diameter then the TO units.....but to use disc type brakes near to water would mean rusted discs and seized callipers? Deutz tractors went down the route of car type brake discs (only on steroids!) These were OK if the tractor was used every day, but let it sit a few days in a damp climate and the discs rusted taking a lot of brake material with them the next time they were used, then the discs formed ridges then the.......??
Get the picture? How about rigging up the brakes on your boat trailer so they can be operated from the tractor? A hydraulic ram connected to the cable and a remote on the tractor or even a simple cable operated handbrake that could be lifted off the boat trailer frame and slotted into a corresponding bracket on the tractor.

Sam, that is a great idea about the brake controls!
Over here, we call it "Yankee ingenuity", what do you folks call it, "Luck o' the Irish"?

The boat and trailer weigh about 3400 lbs and the ramp slope is about 15 degrees so the tractor has plenty of power to pull out but I don't want to take a bath while launching so I will have to do something. Sam's suggestion about trailer brakes may be the simplest fix but electric brakes don't work well in reverse so I would have to turn the trailer brake components around and refrain from any senior moments such as taking it on the highway without putting them back in their normal layout.
