Lifting a ski
One more question for tonight.
How do I lift a ski off my trailer...just enough to reach the middle holes on my ride plate? Is there a good place to lift it with a jack and block? More importantly...is there a bad place to lift it off the trailer bunks?

All i do is slide it back on the trailer until the bolts clear.

Maybe I can adjust the front strap and ratchet...loosely...and lift the front...to help me...persuade the ski back without losing everything...?

I can do it by myself, but it's a bitch.

I've gotten the ski about four inches back from it's usual rest spot, I'm still a few short of clearing enough to work on it. I won't quit.
Must be nice having a block lift...Ha!

I have sprayed liquid soap on thbe bunks which seems to help but I've also used my garden tractor to pull while ski is still attached to my truck. Make sure you loosen the winch strap.

I've got a set of these on my trailer, makes for easy launch and loading.
