    Time to get the boat out of the lake and get it ready for the winter. The P500 is perfect for moving it around the yard. Still used my F150 to get it out of the lake because it's waaaaay better for that kind of work. ;) But I have to know... (see poll)

    You should really launch a boat with a 4 wheeler sometime... the looks are priceless!

    If you want looks, launch it with a spotting hitch. RM

    I have been known to have fished bass tournaments which means you leave very early in the mornings and home late afternoon. Living on the end of a long dead end street with a lot of cars parked on the road, I found it safer and easy to move the boat to the front of the trucks spotting hitch before going down my street. After doing this several time the neighbors came to me and asked about driving with the boat in the front, why I did it and was it safe. I told them it was very safe because I always know where my boat is, and this keeps people from running into my prop. They thought that I drove to and back from the lake with the boat on the spotting hitch! I never told them different. Should I feel bad about this? RM

    Ha...I like that...in my young boy days I worked at a small marina with a public ramp. At that time the ramp fee was 3 bucks but it took folks an avg of 1/2 to 3/4 hr to get there boat in or out. The marina wasnt making much money and neither was I, as the guy in charge I was getting one dollar for each boat that used the ramp. We had an old Jeep parked in the weeds. I got it running well and put a ball on back and front. I would meet folks in the parking lot and hook one boat on front and one on back ( for the same 3 buck fee) . People were shocked to see me going down the road to the ramp with 2 boats in tow. Boat in front launched first, backed up and swung around to drop the empty trailer, then backed in the rear boat, in that time, the first boat had enough time to leave the dock for the second boat to take its place. Now we were getting at least 4 boats in within an hour and I was now making a wopping 4 dollars every hour. Much better than the dollar and a half per hour that most minimum wage folks were making. Many wierd looks from folks while driving down the back road with 2 boats in tow with a little jeep in between!
