Re: Hook line and sunk

Yes Matt I agree.

It is very strange, I just cant imagine someone doing this deliberately but it looks that way.

Re: Merimbula

Fishing in that part of the world is good, basically the same as Eden once out of the bay.

Flatties on the sand, kingfish and reef fish on the offshore reefs, marlin, tuna ect at the shelf.

Re: Safety Chains

As to how your boat is on the trailer, as a very rough guide, if you have a deep vee and don't have a pod typically the motor should touch the ground the trimmed all the way down on the trailer.

Generally the lower the boat the better they tow and easier to launch and retrieve.

Re: Safety Chains

Typically for a boat with a decent V for launching you want the rear chines about 2" under the water.

Then work out how far the car is from the water and go about 30cm shallower for retrieval.

Re: Safety Chains

It sounds like you need a better adjusted or designed trailer as it sounds like your boat is too high. There is an easier way. Back 3/4 of the way stop. Bloke in boat starts motor and puts in forward gear to keep the boat in place. Unhook safety chain and winch strap which feet stay dry then back do...

Re: Safety Chains

At any decent ramp you should never get your feet wet so that is no excuse.
