Ooooh, look at all the Gel-coat on the concrete

Are they trying to recover it? Best to tie off the trailer before it rolls down the slip with boat on top and into the ogging

Been there done that The fix is to chock the trailer front and back, apply handbrake, and use a tow rope and the car to haul the boat back on the trailer. Using the winch is very dangerous, trust me.

Should have used the fork lift in the background to pick the back up, would have saved more damage.

The gel coat on the deck seems to run up under the hull as well as behind it in P2...? would I be right in thinking he did not lock the winch (boat off)then after the event tried to wind it back on?

I recon the winch either wasn't on for some reson or the ratchet gave way. The boat rolled back and as the hull hit the concrete it would have taken a little time to stop rolling back as the front half of the boat would have been still on the trailer and the momentum would have tried to keep the thing moving.
