    Then add to it those dinky little side mirrors, & your foot activated park brake being on the wrong side, well, what can I say??
    Oh, come on.........
    There is only 1 turn buckle to loosen, and really 1 shackle to release.
    You only tow your tub 5 kms down the road.
    Try towing it up north with that setup of yours on that great national highway of ours and see what happens
    What else can you say?
    Hmmmmmmmm............

    At least if I towed mine to 1770 I wouldn't miss the turn off & end up in Miriam Vale

    Hang on a minute.............It was Lowmead
    I said we missed the turn off and you said nah, I've been keeping an eye out for it.
    Your words
    Don't know what you were keeping an eye on tho because it wasn't the turn off????
    At least we found another way to get there along a windy dirt road

    This reminder comes after I recently did the 7hr drive home from 1770 to Ipswich to pull up in the driveway to find the winch post had snapped off my 2009 Brooker trailer.
    Was shocked to see the only thing holding the boat on the trailer was the tie down strap as the safety chain is attached to the same post.
    After a close inspection it looks like the post had cracked at the weld previously and had torn the steal away.
    Not impressed.



    Plastics fantastic but bait is better.
    I got the same POS trailer. Replace the winch mount too mate. I had to stop quickly, my boat jumped forward and bent that f ucker like a bit of paper, only just got boat back on trailer yesterday after a full trailer rebuild. While your at it as well, on the last cross member at the front, put another safety chain up to your boat, so if it does move forward, that chain stops it.
