    So after 3 days of rain we got to go out tonight for the second time.

    Goal for today was to practice docking and low speed maneuvering.

    we threw a fender out and let my wife practice slowing coming up to it and "Docking"...we will spend some more time on that later...

    I practiced on the dock my self a little, winds were about 9-10 mph. I think I mostly got it down, still makes me nervous though.

    After docking once I was pulling away and bumped the back rub rail on the dock and it looks like it pushed the rubber insert out. however, I don't really see where the slack came from so not sure if I stretched the rubber? here is a picture rub rail.jpg


    I tried to push It back in on the trailer, I felt like it moved a little but figured I would ask before I tried to fully force it back in. I noticed in the middle there is a cover with two screws should I take this off? will that make it easier?

    since there was no one else at the launch my wife wanted to try backing the trailer down, still took a bit but she was able to do it all by herself this time!

    here is a picture of how busy it was on the lake.

    Man, your dock sure must have some traction to do that to the rub rail. I've bonked mine a number of times and it didn't do that. My suspicion is you stretched the rubber a little, and the slack is now sticking out the back in your picture. Wish I was some help on how to fix it.

    That’s what it appears, I was able to push it back in and it seems fine now. Just took a little finessing.
