    Looks pretty slick - did you watch the vid on their web page near the bottom? Seems like that would be a nice addition for tucking your boat into a tight garage space. Little spendy but worth it if you use it a lot.
    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

    Yeah I watched the video. Seems fairly impressive. I live on a hill, my driveway is about 150 feet of wicked steep incline that levels sort of on top to a parking pad. My garage is side entry, meaning it is 90 degrees off the parking pad, the parking pad is right on the property line and my truck can't make a turn like that even without backing the boat so I have to man handle it to try and get it into the garage. The parking pad also slopes away from the garage and has a pronounced lip at the garage floor. This boat is way too much for me to be able to get into man handled into the garage by myself... this may be the answer. I have been looking at some 12V or 115V trailer dollys but they are wicked expensive... cool but expensive

    That sure would help me squeeze mine in. I have a 45 degree angle, uphill and then have to unhook it and push it in by hand. Not easy when Its a 110 degrees outside. Jet

    I looked at these too last summer b/c of how tight my garage is and the 90 degree turn I have to make to get the boat in. I had to take the guide poles off the trailer to fit mine in the garage and have about 2 inches to spare on each side. I talked to a lot of different manufacturers of these and finally ended up getting an old used 4 wheeler instead. I mounted (welded) a 2" receiver hitch to the front frame of the 4 wheeler. Now I back the boat down the driveway with the truck, make the 90 degree turn and unhook it and drive the 4 wheeler up and push it straight into the garage. I can also use the 4 wheeler to put the jetski in a few doors down too. So all in all it made for a more versatile tool to have a 4 wheeler instead. Also use it a lot around the yard and to take out stress in the winter months when I can't be on the lake

    This seems like a perfect fit for us - we don't have a vehicle big enough to tow our boat. It seems probably that we could use this instead to just move the boat in and outside the garage for us to do some light work on it? Plus our current tongue wheel mechanism appears to be shot.
