Boat rolls off trailer too easy!

5 posts in this topic

I have a new rig this year, at the access the boat wants to roll right off the trailer, it makes it kind of tricky to launch by myself. Anyone else have this problem? What can I do to keep it in place till I shove off?

I NEVER unhooked the bow strap and safety chains on any of my roller trailers until the boat was in enough water to float it.

Ditto what PerchJerker said.

You will not believe how many boats gets damaged this way.

Anyway there's not much to do about it, you can change your rollers with bunks, it will help from rolling back.

Just wait till the water gets into the bearings and that will slow them down, but NEVER unhook your boat till it is in the water.........

If you don't have a safety strap or chain, I'd recommend that, too.

      Heck, everything darn near locked up today. This morning Cass was all locked up besides some water out just south of Cedar Island. Pike was frozen all the way across. I cruised to Naytahwaush to visit my mother today and everything was locked up besides Lake LaSalle , thich is 200+ feet deep.

      To be honest, a willingness to move and "hole-hop" is a great way to find biting fish.    Anothet shout-out to MN Lake Finder.
