Antifouling on the trailer !

Morning all,

Any thoughts on how to get to the spots that needed to be painted around (rollers) once the rest of the hull has been coated ?
Thank you

Mark

Secure the trailer, prop the back up (securely) with blocks, unhook the winch strap and run it back under a cross beam and forward again to the bow eye. You can now winch backwards. Make sure you fit a short lanyard/chain to prevent uncontrolled unloading of boat to ground!

MChivers, the explanation is fairly clear, in essence you need to push the boat back off the trailer by a foot or so. The suggestion was to use the strap of the winch to pull the boat off the trailer. Using any other description and I just be repeating the words of Wilki!

Ok unhook winch from boat, pull out 2m of winch, pass winch line/strap/cable under the cross member of the trailer and back to the front of the trailer and attach to bow now turn winch handle as thou winching boat onto trailer (have trailer hooked up to a car) the boat will be pulled back. Use a rope to limit movement enough to reach required spots


If trailer has tightly spaced cradles you may need to move a fair way back so support stern (old larger, tyres either side of keel can help)
