View Full Version : boat buddy question

04-23-2007, 09:16 AM
This is my 3rd MC trailer with a boat buddy, but never had this problem before.

'05 X-star, I drove it into the boat buddy until it clicked. After pulling the boat out of the water, I went to hook-up my winch strap and could not get the hook into the eye of the boat, not enough clearance between boat buddy and bow eye! The only thing I could do is put the hook toward the "back" of the bow eye. If I "winch" the boat onto the trailer by standing in the water, everything is okay.

Any ideas? I would like to drive the boat onto the trailer, but if I do I cannot hook the winch strap properly. Weird, huh?
