He a lovely bloke but very busy,Friday night and Monday morn,it's arses and alligators at that slip, trailers can be fully submerged for some time,and with yours never getting a chance to dry out.......
Agreed - I launched and recovered myself and wheels were hardly in the water (brake backplate was dry).

Was down last weekend and watched a trailer being put in so far that only the top of the winch post was above water. Now I know why my breakaway cable got rusty so quickly......
