Constructed from structural-grade aluminium and powder-coated, the Custom Boat Loader is strong, yet lightweight, with tough, stainless steel fittings and worm drive gearbox, and all bearings, rollers and skid plates bespoke manufactured.
Designed and made in Western Australia, two Custom Boat Loader models are available: a fully electric version, with wireless remote control; and one powered by a cordless drill. Through a fulcrum foot, integral winch and four 700kg/900kg rated ropes, Custom Boat Loader tilts your tinnie past vertical, then slides it up onto the roof of your 4x4 in under 2 minutes.
The winch can be stopped and started at any point safely, so you can hose mud and sand off your your dinghy before it's secured. The ropes and runners allow you to pack gear without fouling the winches operation, too, so you can stow your tackle, bait or other gear without interfering with the loader's operation.
The clever design doesn't just pull the tinnie onto the roof, though. Once in position, Custom Boat Loader also pulls the ropes down to secure the boat tightly to the frame - easy! (Use of tie-down straps is recommended for extra security)
If your 4x4's roof is load-rated to take a device like this (Custom Boat Loader can advise on what makes and models are suitable), there's no easier, safer, stronger or better way to load your aluminium dinghy.
Pricing starts from $2,950. (NOTE: price published in JUST 4x4s issue #284 was incorrect)
