    Default Loading your boat

    Seen it quite a few times ,wind picks up and people try to load their boats with the wind and the waves pounding them from the sides of their boats as they pull their boats on the trailers the waves knock them off their trailers and they get all jacked sideways and have to get someone in the water to hold or try to hold their boats so they can get their winch attached, fingers pinched ,they get knocked around and have to back off and get another shot at loading. heres a tip, besides using a couple of guides of PVC pipe to line up your entance to your trailer ,turn your trailer into the waves so it doesn't push you sideways it will make loading sooooooo much easier and safer.
    Most of my lures catch more fishermen than fish !!!

    Fishing is God's way of saying he loves us!

    I just got some black iron pipe to make rear guides for my trailer. Alot of ppl here also use those swimming noodles over the pipes. I think I am gonno stick with pvc over black iron pipe because my old boat is pretty heavy.
    As much as I like to fish I can never fish as much as I'd like.

    Lots of practicing in the river helps me to negotiate those swelling waves. Too bad I can't get my BIL to listen to a little common sense. I remember we spent 30 minutes loading the boat on his trailer. I rather take on some water over the stearn than from the boat rocking back and forth on it's sides.

    Loading the boat gets especially easier when you have 4 other people waiting in line.
