Where is the water!

We saw incidents like this a few times this summer. I aways check my boat is chained on to the trailer every time!

Ten points for the first ribster to name the venue!

This is the exact type of incident I was referring to in post as to how one might remedy it, what did they do to get the boat back on?

1/2 dozen blokes lifting the stern whilst one bloke winched her back on the trailer. scrapes to the hull at the back end.

What concernes me is the fact that kids could be injured or even worse!

The point that I am making is always double check your pride and joy is secure, I do!

That one is easy to fix. Attach winch cable, place 1/2doz. fat blokes on bow to tip stern back up, tighten winch cable and back down into water, remove 1/2 doz. fat blokes and start again.
