    Re: Boat trailering problem

    Nose not going over the front roller can mean the trailer is too deep.
    You may not have to go quite as deep to load a boat as you do to lauch it.

    I back down until the the top of the trailer tire is about 3" above the water surface. * I have found this to be a good starting point if loading an unfamiliar boat or at an unfamiliar ramp. * *

    When loading at Decker, stay to the left, that is, the side closer to the power plant, the west side, when looking at it from the parking lot. * It seems to me that right side is steeper and I have watched folks smoke their tires trying to pull a big boat in on the right side of that ramp.

    Put the boat in this morning, and fished with the_bass_man. Went to put the boat on the trailer, sunk the trailer to get the skids wet, pulled back up, found my sweet spot on the trailer and went right on.

    You guys are great.
    Thanks again.

    Hey now I helped Lance ;D


    Just kidding, I am glad we were able to find the right way to get it on there.
