WELCOME TO CUSTOM BOAT LOADERS
Bill & Cameron have more than 75 years experience between them in the 4WD repairs and boating industries. It was Bill & Dian’s passion for caravanning, camping, boating and fishing that brought about the design of the aluminium boat loader/roof rack. In our 14+ years of operation we have become recognised as Australia’s best and most reputable roof rack boat loader.
One person can quickly & easily load & unload an aluminium dinghy on & off their 4WD vehicle roof, using a cordless drill or fully wireless remote controlled version, in about 2 minutes! We also make a heavy duty version to suit the larger boats on the bigger vehicles such as the Ford “F” series, Dodge Ram, Chevy Silverados etc.
The heavy duty, but lightweight construction, is virtually maintenance free and perfect for the serious 4WD’er and those people traveling with a caravan and wanting to take a boat too! It keeps the fun in boating by taking the hard work out of taking the tinnie with you! You can see from the video just how easy it is for anyone to operate. We carry out modifications and repairs to aluminium dinghies; also caravan accessories such as outboard carriers. Cameron can advise you on a choice of boat and outboard, modifications such as gunwale rails, steps, floors etc. Ask us about a quote for a full package deal – we are a One Stop Shop!
Feel free to have a look around our ever growing website and if you have any questions, we’re only a click away, enjoy!
You can leave the boat partially loaded and hose out the interior of the boat before completing the loading. This will protect the roof of the vehicle from salty water. We recommend carrying 20 litres of freshwater to complete the hosing out process.
When loading/unloading the boat will not move even in heavy wind conditions – if it is windy enough to move the boat on the loader it’s too windy to be out boating!!
Boat loader arrived and all parts O.K. We have assembled and tested the loader and congratulations on an excellent designed mechanism. It works perfectly and we will promote the loader to all, so once again thank you for a great invention.
It is most definately OK for you to arrange for anyone interested to have a look at the Custom Boat Loader "Masterpiece of Engineering" anytime. All they have to do is give us a phone call first up to make sure that we are home. I may even be able to meet them in Townsville somewhere if I am planning a trip into town around a convenient time for both parties. I know that your Boat Loader generates a lot of interest from people who see it sitting on top of our Cruiser and we have handed out quite a few of your brochures and cards to people on your behalf. I hope that this has been fruitful to sales for you. We have even had enjoyable discussions with other happy Custom Boat Loader owners, the most recent one with a couple in Yungaburra who have recently come back from a trip up in the gulf.
Thanks for the email, ever thing went to plan. Hook the ropes on and up went the boat, fantastic, so thank Cameron for his guidance and where he told me to put the eye bolts work a treat and no adjustment needed. Just sending a couple of photos for proof and thanks again.
