The boat was towed from Wake Forest NC home to Tennessee without incident and put away. Now, by “put away” I mean my then husband thought it sufficient to put the motor in the garage (reasonable assumption), the trailer beside the garage (in the weather uncovered?) and the boat upside down behind the garage (fairly reasonable idea – or so it seemed at the time).
|A Ladder? Seriously?|
- I towed a U-Haul trailer with my ’89 Integra from Morgan County Tennessee to Pennsylvania filled with a bedroom set and appliances. I could not pull the trailer up a hill in the rain very easily – that car was NOT meant for towing anything!
- I towed a Sea-doo personal water craft twice with the Integra. That went well enough.
- I towed my ’89 Acura Integra on a tow dolly behind the biggest U-Haul truck I could find – from PA to Knoxville TN in the middle of the night. Yea, same bedroom set and appliances and everything else I owned were in that truck! I should never have moved to PA!
- I towed a triad of dirt-bikes on a shade-tree mechanic trailer behind a Chevy 2500 from Windrock Mountain after a ride.
- I towed a 14’ utility trailer loaded with my daughter’s dirt-bike behind a Lincoln Continental – from Mom’s to the farm (all of 5 minutes away) and back.
- I towed, I towed, wait, that was it… The sum of my towing experience from about 1993 until this year.
- Know the chemicals you are using and wear gloves. Lacquer thinner hurts!
- Always wear safety glasses when using a sander! Luckily I have Oakley sunglasses that are ANSI rated!
- Anti-skid paint takes a long time to dry when the relative humidity is 4 million %!
