A series of photos showing a G-3 Fiberglass center deck being put on a trailer to tow it home.

Note that the boat is on the ground and we need to lift it up onto the trailer as well as move it forward on the trailer.

We unhooked the trailer from the tow truck so it could tilt /angle down at it's back edge. We then wedged a length of plywood under the bow of the boat for the boat to side onto the trailer, once we stated pulling on the boat's bow eye.

Using two "come a-longs" we winched the boat forward onto the trailer.

Here the boat is on the trailer and it's weight has caused the trailer to be level again. And the come alongs have been removed and the boat is tied down to the trailer with the yellow straps.

Looks like you got the job done Chris! Good idea............

Here is a photo for you of our 1960 Glasspar Seafair Sedan on my 24'
flatbed when we bought it up in Michigan three years ago. We were lucky to have had the Seafair on a boat trailer although I do have a 10,000 pound winch on my flatbed.
