Jaysus man! the bloke only posted a video of something that was boat related & of interest to some, it wasn't a "This is how you must do it" instructional guide. Anybody who's numb enough to think that that's the only way to do it shouldn't be allowed out in the first place. What next, a warning before each video "Don't try this at home children, please get a responsible adult to help with the scissors" "Do not use microwaves for drying pets"....hang on, that ones been done
Give the bloke a break, carry on DHF

Despite all the hoopla about dumb youtube videos...

I did find a relatively local drawbar extension manufacturer. I'd never thought much about this before and I'm going to see about having one made up!

Looking forward to the result Captnjack, I'm in production of similar myself.

For now here's another example of "how not to"!!!

Carry on recovery
