    Many thanks. My previous boat was a 1954 Chris Craft and I stood in the water and floated the boat up to the bow stop while someone held the mooring lines. Doesn't sound like that will work here...

    Loading '89 Saltare onto trailer

    I'm having a bit of a problem when retrieving the boat. The bow wants to come in under the V-stop. I can see where this has apparently happened to the previous owners. Am I not getting the trailer...

    I passed on this one. Didn't realize how big a 23' boat was compared to my 20' Chris Craft. Not for navigating the boat on the water, but more launch, retrieval, etc. My wife and I are both in our...
