Default Another boat off the trailer...

I copied this from www.cbpba.com
http://www.cbpba.com/forums/showthre...&threadid=2370
I don't know any details.

This makes 5 boats already this season clean off the trailer onto the ground. PLEASE cinch down your boats with ratchet straps in the rear, and a heavy safety chain in the front. I am literally sick of seeing this.

must have happened since the props are not turning out


Seriously, that bites.
So glad it is not happening to me.
Yes I have traveled without straps and now looks like I will be doing a better job on using them

Wow, where is the road and trailer?

Looks like it did some traveling on it's own.

Props and drives look to be in o.k. shape... my guess is the boat came from the road at the top of the hill in the 3rd picture...

we need T2x for a solid rant about how steps f'ck up towing aerodynamics and the boats get out of control.

Me too on the transom tie downs ...I always run a monster triangulated safety chain up front tho.

Should buff out, but will still be a Fountain.
