flying4 replied to 246inColorado's topic in Polls!!This is too funny 3rd time we took out the 256 we forgot the tie straps turned into a big fiasco really fast since where we normally launch has current and a really steep ramp. needless to say the boat drifted with the trailer but nothing a little quick thinking couldn't fix got her pulled out and everything taken care of. Needless to say this event had me editing our checklist. we never start the engine if the straps are not on the floor under the helm.
