Boating is an expensive pastime. Because most boaters don’t have the luxury of living on the water, they must store their crafts on trailers and drive them to the water at the beginning of the season. But getting a vessel to the sea safely without ruining either boat or vehicle is not as easy as it might seem. Along the way, there are dozens of obstacles and hundreds of small details to attend to.
But fear not! From experienced boater John Tiger, Jr. comes Boat Trailering, a comprehensive guide to every aspect of trailering your vessel. Includes sections on:
• Common trailering parts and uses
• Types of tow vehicles and their respective proficiencies
• Classification of hitch types and what they mean
• Various breaking systems and their abilities
• Backing your trailer up into the water
• And more!
Comprehensive yet easy to understand, Boat Trailering is a must-have for every boater.
