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

      Cannons a go good 3 inches where I check and two guys out 100 yards

      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.

      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.

      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
