When my fishing buddy and I put the boat into the water, or take it out of the water, at times we have to walk the center beam of the trailer to get to the boat to hook the bow eye, or straighten the boat out so it will come onto the trailer properly. I like to mess around and melt metal, to I was thinking I could make a set of fasteners for the trailer I could bolt a 1 x 10 board to so we would possibly quit falling in that cold water. Then I got to thinking that the wood may be slick when wet. I have some metal mesh wire and I am wondering if that would work somehow. What is the opinion of the gret BOC?
