Boat Trailer Walk Plank. Great Service from Mandurah.

  Thought I would share the great service I got last week from a Company in Mandurah.

 I did some research about fitting a walk plank on the trailer( as I have a foot injury).

To make life easier retrieving the boat,thought a walk plank was a good idea. Didn't want to fit a metal plank,so google Grate matting-Plastic Grating.

Found out that you could purchase "Off Cuts" from Grating RFP in Mandurah. PH 95842500

Very helpful blokes there,had a off cut which was pefect for the trailer,and very reasonable price. Even had the stainless securing clips.

  LOL- And I have placed a order for one of Ian's Winches.

So life will be easy when retrieving the boat!

 And the Moke has gone to Qld- it would have struggled with the boat. Poor thing.

They have strips they sell for that purposes. Grate Mates I think they are called.

Scavenger Supplies (who is Grating FRP Australia and also Conveyor Technologies) on google :-)

I am no way affiliated, I have just worked with them in the past.

Got mine from there last

Got mine from there last year.

I ran the grating down the middle by removing the centre rollers and putting them back in through the holes in the grating. No extra bolts etc to hold it in place.
