Why do boat trailers SUCK?

Bottom Bouncers

  • When to use what size weight?
  • Using line counters to control distance
  • Different styles nowadays
  • Pulling cranks behind bottom bouncers, when they excel over snap weights

It’s now late June, and the boat landing horror stories are growing smaller

Tips for Boat Landings

  • ALWAYS get boat ready AWAY from the landing
  • DO NOT load gear on the ramp, just loading and unloading please
  • When the temperature is below freezing, let your trailer drain in the water…NOT the ramp (skating rink).
  • Boat dock is not a swim beach
  • Think of others
