On ramps with shorter lead-ins, you may have to back around a turn to reach the water. The key to a smooth turn is in the setup. Ideally, you'll want to make a smooth, mediumradius turn that leaves the tow vehicle and trailer aligned and facing the ramp a bit before the trailer hits the water. For the average trailer, this can be done by starting the turn about two rig lengths from the top of the ramp. Visualize a fixed pivot point for the turn, and identify an object that lines up with the end of the turn.
