    Van,

    I saw a guy trying to power load a boat onto a trailer that had the glyde strips on it, I laughed my butt off, he would power up the boat would lunge forward then it would slide back down off the trailer further back then where he was originally when he hit the gas, after about 5 failed attempts he had to pull his trailer way out of the water and try again then just crank like normal.

    His boat was a 18-20 foot tundra.
     
  5. Freyedknot, got them on my duckboat. When loading you better have the thing tied off or it's gone. I drive-on and have to keep the motor in gear until I hook-up the winch. A bonus, no more frozen bunks in the winter. I bought the black ones @ BPS.
