    Ok well I have two firstly I donít like my reels resting on the gunwales when in a normal rod holder especial now a lot of rods have a shorter butt so I made up four of these. They are stronger than I thought and have used them now for more than a year no problems.

    Second launch and retrieve solo I have a good strong braided rope with a D shackle on one end, I attach the D shackle to the car tow bar where your safety chain attaches then I just sit it up over the V section of the plastic. When I drive on I just walk forward with the motor still running and reach the rope and tie it off at the anchor tie post the turn off the motor boat goes back about one foot hop out over the front and connect the winch and tighten and the job is done. Oh and no rope rubs on the paint work.

    I once used a dead lawn mower as a jockey wheel for a boat trailer that was missing it. Worked really well for maneuvering it in the yard. it just needed electric skid steer motors and a pendent controller.

    So here it is mounted. I had visions of me hitting the brakes on the way to the ramp and the draw sliding out so a bit of bungy cord did the job...

    Today while rummaging around in the shed I remembered that I had tried to take a selfie in the boat but the camera wouldn't sit upright on the dash so I found this suction cap with a metal thread down the middle. Found a bolt that fitted and guess what the camera had the same thread. Cut the head off the bolt and screwed the two together...nice

    Re: Your inventions...

    I had a spare roller bracket cover which I found many years ago and wondered what to do with it. I didn't like the way the jockey wheel grease nipple hit the frame work so thought I would put the cover to good use. Now it's not lying around in my shed anymore.

    Re: Your inventions...

    The other night I dropped a few pots in and had trouble finding the floats. I had some stitch on reflective tape in the shed so I flattened one side of the float on the lathe to give the tape somewhere flat to stick to and works like a beaut in the dark..
