Re: winch or capstan suggestion?

Case Turner
 

Of mounted to your trailer why no use a 12volt winch and battery on the trailer? 

Any WARN or knock off winch rated for that weight would work.

Hi group,

My Tolman skiff on the trailer is 25 feet long and the street in front of my house is 24 feet wide, so no way can I back the trailer up my driveway.

So, anyone got a suggestion for a 110 volt winch that I can anchor into the driveway? Or even attach it to the trailer so I can turn it on and off as I steer the trailer up using a tri-pod of casters under the tongue.  I've got a harbor freight 12 volt winch, but it supposedly can only be used for 15 seconds at a time with too much time in between to cool off.

The boat/trailer combo weighed 2700 pounds empty when picked up in April and my driveway rises maybe four feet over a fifty foot run.

I've considered capstans and rope, and attached is a screen capture from a  video of a homemade one:

If you've got one of those right angle gears you want to sell cheap, or know of a place to get one, that would be great.

Thanks,
Mark

Thank you John. For me it's been a hard year with no water time. Hopefully maybe next year will be better. At least it's giving me time to get improvements done to my boats for when I do get to be out on the water.

Re: After Thanksgiving paddle

 

We should skip the After Thanksgiving float. The float isn't just a bunch of individual boaters that happen to be on the river at the same time, it's also a social event where we eat pizza and BS. We couldn't in good faith use the Toledo Boathouse for shelter for the pizza feed. Also, we'd have to arrange shuttling tow rigs from Cannon Quarry to the Airport Ramp.

Let's hope the weather is cold, wet and windy on the 28th, so we won't feel so bad about not doing the float. ;o)

Re: Good Read

 

Magic Harbor was only published on the Interweb. Don Berry was an early adopter of online publishing, and had a Web page way back when. He's gone now, and his online works survive only on the WaybackMachine:

http://web.archive.org/web/20040919230249/http://www.donberry.com/

I saved Magic Harbor to a CD years ago. I think it may be in the Coot Library.

His historical novels about Oregon are all good:

Boat camera -- OOPS!!!

Electri-Cal
 

Looks like my package was a non essential item.  Cardboard box was crushed inside the outer envelope.  Screen damaged, picture out of alignment.  Contact seller for a refund, and is now packed for return.  waiting on the label and refund now.  Stuff happens, looked like a good unit if it was ok.  Bought on eBay, but shipped from China so long and harder shipping than from USA.  Will get back on the case after refund arrives, darn post office sometimes does a "dirty" and does not mention damage in a loose shipping envelope.   Couple things I found to look out for, so next one will have notes to the shipper written on the order, up front. 

PS ---   Amazon packs better, in some cases, also I pick my stuff from them in Town, at the local spot.  Saves days in delivery out here in the sticks !!  Worth the few bucks more for sensitive items.

Back to the drawing board,   Cal
