Magic.


You position a couple of pulleys half way down the dock and put a rope through the pulleys and boat eye tying the ends of the line together. You then connect the winch to the loop of rope. As you winch the boat moves back and you get to go out to play.

.........and the cost of all this? are you able to share!

Guess I'm needing to clean my bottom every 3 weeks to keep on top of the crud which I normally do off the beach. But body and mind starting to ache now, as both are not quite as they use to be. Would like to think our marina could/may come up with perhaps, a joint venture. Much prefer this idea to dry stacking.

Look much the same. I notice that there's a winch attached to their dock. It looks to me when I look at the video the bow of the boat appears further forward when they drive the boat on (using the rear storage box for a reference point) than when they come to reverse the boat off. It looks to me like some careful editing has been done to make getting off a tad easier. I could be wrong, it wouldn't be the first time.

I agree. Clearly missing some footage of the winch in action
