Re: [OMC-Boats] Rope-A-Boat for easy launching

I keep looking out my rear door at my Explorer sitting at the rear of the carport.  It's another near snow day here in Dallas.

It's funny about that Rope-a-boat thing.  I thought about doing something similar with ropes myself though that one is far more sophisticated than what I was thinking.  I settled for the standard side guides which, if spring/summer ever gets here, I can try for the first time.

Yeah, I agree. I don't need one, but I do appreciate the innovative thinking.

Actually, I like the approach he's used in allowing you to buy the various modules or parts and in different finishes.

If you subtract what you would invest in trailer guides, electric winch, new bow eye, etc, then it's nearly expensive.

One drawback is gaining access to the bow eyebolt hardware and then hoping it would co-operate after forty years!


PS -- Anyone else starting to get spring (boat) fever ??
