They don't care what it costs as long as you can dig deeper into your pocket.

I always back the boat into the water before unhooking, and i always hook it up before i pull it out. Saw a guy with rollers on the trailer do that this year. We had him back the trailer into the boat and push it on the concrete the last 10 feet to the water. left a nice line of fiberglass powder on the ramp. got it in the water and he went for a ride, though. didn't appear to be taking on water.

Happened to the one and only time I let a neighbour pull me out. He claims he hooked the strap to the eye. If it hadn't been for about 20 people yelling at him he would have pulled the trailer clean out from under the boat . It ended up balanced on the outdrive skeg.

With about 8 guys and a come-along we managed to get the nose down to where the OD was a few inches off the ground and backed it back in.

Amazingly there was no damage. Not something you want to do with a 29 footer.

Being as it was July 4th, I should have known he was trashed.

Looks good on them. Two weeks ago we sent a convoy of 150 Ontario Hyrdo workers and a fleet of trucks to south east Florida to help out with the Wilma situation and they held them up at the border going over the trucks and documents with a fine tooth comb for 7 hours!!! Unbelievable.
