My pet hate is lighting boards and cable, so I thought I would share this little mod I have made to my lighting board.
What happens - Your lighting board is in place on its brackets and the cable is wrapped around the trailer frame to prevent it from dragging on the road and damaging the cable. You arrive at the slipway, and you either have to completely remove the lighting board and unwrap all the cable from around the trailer, or if your trailer is long enough you can just re-position your lighting board nearer to your winch post and tie it on to the trailer frame with a bungee. (tried that, lighting board still got half submerged in the briny).
Cut the cable at the lighting board and fitted a trailer socket to the board, and an additional plug to the end of the cable. Tie wrapped half the cable to the front half of the trailer frame, so that the rear half of the cable can be pulled clear of the water and the plug can then be fitted into the plug holder at the front of the trailer.
Result is cable never needs to be removed from trailer and the lighting board can be quickly removed.
