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!!
Thank you Dian, The boatloader works just fine. We have had a wonderful afternoon raising and lowering the boat. A few minor adjustments to the ropes and everything worked just fine. (Thank god Optima batteries can handle a continuous load.) We have also worked out how to unload the boat straight onto the little bulldog trailer.Please thank Bill for his advice. My back loves each of you.
To Di, Bill, Cameron & team, It has been a pleasure doing business with you all, also if you want to I give you permission to put us on your satisfied clients page. You should have pictures from the video that Hugh sent over. Once again a big thankyou from Pat and myself. Regards Ray PS: If you need any help in the future here in S.A. just yell or let Hugh know.
Have returned home safely from Tasmania after a fantastic holiday. Apart from the initial hitch caused by my auxiliary battery being flat, the boat loader worked magnificently. It attracted quite a bit of interest at Miena and a number of locals were keen to see it in operation and to hear about how it does all the work for you. A sensational product – very much appreciated – together with your service in meeting my needs in such a tight time frame.
