Hi all,

I live in central Scotland and iím Lucky enough to have easy access to the stunning west coast (knowledgable from Plockton down to Ardfern) and Loch Lomond.

I have used ribs and various other boats for about 10-20 days per year for 10 years for leisure use - island hopping, day trips (lunch!), water skiing and mackerel fishing.

Looking to further my knowledge as we spend more time on the water.

Hi, weather stayed ok. Got back at 3pm and got it on the trailer but 30mins+ later and I would have had a problem.

Started recovery with a rope between tow ball and trailer but the trailer was at the end of the slip edge and the front was lifting. Hitched it on and ratcheted that big old lump on there.

Thank you for your help in the morning, very kind of you.
