I had to stop pulling to move the hook over the roller but no big deal. Had the boat on in minutes. It's a simple, easy solution.
Glad it worked. Cool technique, no?
Other Sawtooth update...
I had my trailer for 2 years now, but I didn't have a lot of road miles on it. I finally did the hubs - Yeah I know... every 12 months - as they started to look kind of rank and the small grease leaking from them was collecting dirt. One of the hub cap dust covers managed to push out about halfway after a Lake Powell trip...not sure how that happened. Luckily Randy put on EZ Lube hubs and after opening them, I noticed the grease was kind of paltry... maybe the small leaks had it get out. I added in 2 tubes of Napa Marine Grease and cleaned them up. Look as good as new. Hopefully they will hold up.
Anyone else have any issues with the hubs on these or the EZ Lube setup?
