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.

      I can speak for Ludlows and have nothing but high praise. Mark, Sally, Paul and Kelly run a top notch resort. June to early September they are usually about Max capacity each week. Outside of the peak season weekend use is still relativity high. They don't have a restaurant on site but will provide(cooked in house) high end meals for some large cooperate groups that come in. They aren't struggling and the service won't be beat anywhere on Vermillion.

      hope you all are paying close attention to the meandered water issue at bay here in SD. Sounds like some landowners in Mn are taking notes.    Its a difficult subject and I and can see both sides from private and public perspectives.

      Now that the ice is gone, what do people fish for before the walleye opener? Any reports?
