Just some advice please.
On arriving at the boat yard I noticed that my rear ratchet strap was loose. On investigation, I noticed the rib had moved forward and had dropped down in front on the first roller.
This meant I had to trailer the boat further into the water to float it above the roller so she could be pushed of the trailer.
Firstly is this common ? I can only think I winched her too far forward in the first place so she was barely sitting on the last roller.
Also I am wondering on the way i secured the boat on the trailer was inadequate. I use a ratchet strap on the rear of the boat going through the d rings and and against the engine to stop it moving back. The winch secured on the front and a smaller ratchet strap at the front, initially to also stop her moving back, but on the return journey I attached it so she couldn't move forward.
Any advice please, and If anyone has a decent photo or two of your rib secured to the trailer these would be a great help.
Also I learnt one lesson from today. Never let go of the ratchet handle without it in the locked position. I now have a black eye and bruised face after it span and smacked me in the face.
