Rope-A-Boat

I saw this on here a while ago, but can't find the post. Does anyone have this system. It's looks pretty awesome and I have the OK from the wife to get it. Would like to hear if anyone has used it though.

I know Dietz has seen it in action he seemed impressed.

The ropeaboat website has a video I believe!

Yep, I've watched the video and it looks pretty cool. Since I take kids and older people or by myself at times I was thinking it would save me a lot of headaches. Just wanted some input if someone has used it. I do remember Deitz saying he saw it in action and liking it.

I seen it in action at Sportsman Show. It seemed to good to be true. I figure it would wear out in a short period of time. Or it would get tangled up in future.

I posted in your post in the open water forum as I saw it first... The guy that owns the company lives here in the Chisago Lakes area. And I have seen him load his boat a few times. He let me at it a couple of times and it was pretty slick. If I had a roller trialer, I am pretty sure I would have the system on my trailer.

It works on a pully system, and I dont see how it would wear out? You may have to replace the ropes every couple of years maybe?... but even then I doubt it?

Well Wade, you set the hook like a girl so maybe you fall into the kids. But then you did try to net a lawn chair so maybe that falls in the old folks. Not sure yet. cool.gif

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.

      It's true, people were driving out on the river yesterday, but the ice is melting quickly and the current has picked up.  The snow cover is gone and there is about 1" to 2'' of standing water.  This extended warm weather has me worried.   Personally, I think vehicle traffic is "Iffy" now.  Be careful.

      The webcam has been running for a few days now. I was watching it on and off all day yesterday and saw a fair number of vehicles going on and off the lake. But I haven't seen anything yet this morning. I was thinking about going out tomorrow, but I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I may call Harty's this afternoon and see what they say.
