Rope-A-Boat

8 posts in this topic

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

      I didn't think so I will ask the dnr but the way it reads youth and archery are not restricted to zone and time

      I could have been wrong but normally you had to pick a zone

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase
