Went down to Lake Pueblo with the new PA12, I guess everything went ok for the first time. Did a little zig And zaging until I got the hang of steering.Did manage to
catch a couple of Smallmouth bass. The only problem is that if the trailer goes in the water,I have to have the trailer inspected ,for zebra mussels. when I take it out. I was able
to launch with the wheels at the waters edge. Made it difficult to load the boat with the end of the trailer setting so high. I think I have figured it out. pulling the boat on a little ways and hooking it to the trailer; then go to the hitch and pull it the rest of the way on. Practice Practice. 8) 8) :lol: :lol:

Because of saltwater rust, I never put my wheels in the water. I simply lift the front of the PA onto the PVC pipes and then go to the back and lift/slide the PA onto the trailer. My trailer is over two years old and doesn't have any saltwater rust :!: :!: :!:

Thats a good tactic... Never get any part of your trailer wet. (Old school trailering 101)
