the problem I guess I am always going to have is my location . Although your offer of a help makes it very tempting to drive a bit further . I do have a bit of time off from 16th dec so might think about it .
Cheers

Agreed about painter being secured before reversing. I always have a back-up rope to the bow U-bolt just in case.

Once you reach the water's edge, switch off engine and leave the car in gear. There's a fair weight with trailer, boat and engine. Most handbrake cables will stretch slightly over time, so this is good back-up measure.

With the 4.8, there's no need to dunk your rear wheels. She'll float off easily as long as waterline is up to mudguards on trailer. On retrieving, pull the transom bung and ensure the painter, winch strap and a back up chain/rope are secured.

Good luck

Get yea boat hitched up and head west loads of easy places in Cardigan bay where you can launch in a harbour, this time of year you will have the slip to your self
Google Aberdovey I'm always around to help and give any advice plus the scenery this way is better then heading south

Anglesey is an easy run this time of year, motorway/dual carriageway all the way. Plus some of the most spectacular sheltered waters.

Ask on the Whitby;

or Holderness coast;

Holderness Coast Fishing Forums - Index


fishing forums about launching places on the East coast, several boat anglers on them.
