Ezi-Guides are a self-aligning boat loading system and can be used in either winch on or drive on retrievals.
Tide direction and wind speed should be taken into consideration and extra care should always be taken when loading the boat in these conditions.
When driving the boat onto the trailer, boat entrance speed and direction of travel are important factors to consider, misaligning the hull with the centre of the Ezi-Guide can cause damage to both the Ezi-Guide and the hull of the boat.
(ARK Corporation is not liable for any damage sustained to the boat hull on improper use, excessive boat speed or misalignment)
For maximum efficiency when loading the boat
– Reverse the trailer into the water until the last keel roller is level with the water, any deeper will lose the effectiveness of the Ezi-Guide system.
– Drive the boat towards the trailer, recommended approach is IDLING* speed
– Align the bow with the centre of the Ezi-Guide systems and drive boat onto trailer
– Fit winch strap and safety chain
*IDLING speed is when the throttle is just clicked forward of neutral
