I am looking for some suggestions on ways that I might be able to load and unload our pontoon by myself. Here is the situation: I love to fish as much as anyone on earth and due to permanent injuries from a head on car accident (not my fault) and now, arthritis/fibromyalgia. and peripheral neuropathy in my feet, I no longer work. My husband (oldtroll) works days Mon. - Fri. and when needed works overtime and some weekends as well. There are lots of times that I could go fish but the problem is that while I can hook up the trailer to the Suburban, pull it, back it in the water, get it off the trailer, drive it back onto the trailer, etc. its very difficult for me to get off the pontoon, go park the truck/trailer and walk back to and get back up on the boat. But the even bigger problem is in getting it secured once loaded back on the trailer. Often when putting it on the trailer, even though it pulls up snug, and we snap the strap hook, when I pull it up the ramp, it has to be tightened/pulled forward some with the winch strap which is all but impossible for me to do. Also, getting the rear tiedowns fastened is another thing that I can't quite get on my own yet. Most people I know work so couldn't go if they did fish and the ones that don't work don't fish...lol Any ideas aside from someone wanting to meet at the lake and fish with me? Of course I would be open to finding some fishing buddies too...lol The lake being High Rock and/or Badin.... Thanks for any ideas you may have.
