So, did Monty ever find an Olds? Or was he just kickin' tires?...... Motor is still in the boat, ready to test.

Got 'em that man... Trying to figure out a way to pull this off... Need to get my 21' mini day off my trailer and find the gas money and time to head to AZ...  I will put those pics up tonight...

It's really easy!!! Start truck, put in reverse, throttle to the floor, lock up brakes, boat off trailer!!! I see it all the time on the YouTube  bloopers!!

That'll work too.. Just put some tires under the rear of the boat as it comes off.. Then you can use a cherry picker on the bow eye. I guess that's better than my way. At least a little less destructive.  :biggrin:

No sweat on this end. I have a forklift and an "A" frame, as well as the river if we used a little duct tape on the openings...... :zz22_yikes:
