    Boat shutdown on me last night. Had to leave it tied anyone up to give me a tow back to the lower chatnika launch saturday or sunday? Beer, gas money, and big kisses from a fat man for the help?

    how are you doing with your boat, how big a boat, how heavy to tow, how far from the take out point, and how much shallow water to bring it through. you could always add towing insurance to your policy and call them in a couple weeks ;-)

    Its still there with no real way to get it out as of now. Its a 16' jon and the tow wil be about 15 miles to the launch all deep water 4' -8' luckly. I could do the insurance thing but september is so close!

    Pretty disappointing to see insurance fraud suggested as a solution.

    Boat is moved to a friends cabin and is safe. Im sure the insurance comment was ment as it was taken as a joke no reason to judge.

    Actually no, it was serious. People do that sort of thing, which is clearly illegal (otherwise why wait a few weeks to hide the actual date of the loss), and then complain about their rates.

    if its only a 15 mile tow for a jon boat, i would think my airboat would not have difficlities doing it, i was thinking a lot longer then that, but gas just to get my airboat down there is expensive, and biggest problem will be to figr out a date i am free
