Just last week after a buddy call ahead warning me (thanks Mr. Trent) of a pontoon off the end of the ramp at anchor inn. Then I get there to witness another one. So I had to fix a bunk last night and had to weld the bunk brackets. Since I had the welder out already decided to make a little helper after my own finding of katies woods ramp end a couple years ago and seeing what the other toons did and seeing what they got stuck on. They all got stuck on the leaf spring perch. Pictured below.





I have some flat stock around that I make my box anchors out of and decided to try this encase I find the end of one of these ramps. So far it's been no problem so hope that streak keeps on knock on wood!

I think by eliminating the void and giving the trailer something to slide back to the wheel surface to (not get hung)hopefully.

Manufacturer warning..... don't go testing!! Built to use lol!

That's awesome Vess-I was that " That guy" Trent was speaking of-
A few inches do make A Lot of difference-It the difference in that we went off of the end-
I love what you made-that looks like what I need to do-
( besides waiting to go back to towok until we get some more rain)
