No need to adjust your roller, just going to be trial and error to get the trailer in the right spot on the ramp. Agree that I go much deeper on launch than retrieval.

I saw those Rangers coming in, first thing I thought about was, them asking me for all my paperwork, and here I am with a busted kill switch thingy in my hand losing control of my boat...I managed!

You're not alone Rodney. Pretty much when boating with your wife, you are by yourself. Or you wish you were.

One last little tidbit here. Got to digging around in the MAKO manual and found this Launch and recover procedure....If all else fails read...It's pretty specific to this trailer and make of boat too...
