Boat jacking



I have an odd ? Anyone ever jack a boat up to clear the trailer and what was the best way to do that?
I want to get my trailer out and get it blasted and repainted before spring.

How big is your boat?

I've made a temp stand using cement blocks and 2 x 6s. With a 16-foot Lund, I used a hydraulic jack to lift the stearn, used tent stakes and rope to anchor the boat while rolling the trailer ahead enough to brace up the front. You'll want to have the trailer hooked up to a vehicle as you roll ahead so that it doesn't get away.

Advice is worth what you pay for it. Anyway, I had a 17' Crestliner with 115 Merc. I got two BIG tractor tires from tire dealer that were shot and couple of car tires. Put big one, and car tire so to be pretty close to bottom of boat, behind the motor. Put as far under as possible, anchor the transom and pulled ahead slowly with vehicle. (roller trailer)Just before it came off trailer (must be hooked to vehicle or trailer will shoot ahead) put second tire under bow as far back as possible. To put back on, remove trailer from vehicle, hook winch to bow, raise tounge high in air. As you crank winch, it will push front tire towards back and tounge will come down. Remove tire. When tounge is down far enough, hook securly up to vehicle. SLOWLY back trailer as you winch and you will be suprised how easy boat loads onto trailer.

Make sure motor (propeller) is TILTED UP before you start. Watched a guy dig the skeg into blacktop once.

Roll the boat a couple ft back off the trailer. Lower the ball end of the trailer to the ground. Now block and brace the rear of the boat leaving no distance between the blocking and boat. With the trailers tongue jack raise the trailer as high as you can. Run a 6x6 between the trailer and boat and block both ends under the 6x6 leaving enough room for the tires to clear. Block the hull so it won't roll. Let the boat back down with the tongue jack. Your trailer is now clear from the boat. Unhook the wench rope and pull the trailer out.

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      Mini drones like Feichao Mini Drone Quadcopter M9 are good to take footage.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.
