I don't trailer, but I will say that every performance boat I see on the highway turns my head. I've pulled into gas stations for no other reason than to get a closer look at someone's boat.

When I trailer my 38 I have had many people hang in my blind spot checking out the boat. Sometimes it's a pain when I'm trying to switch lanes and I have to count to 10 keeping my cool realizing it's just a compliment. Tomorrow I'll be trailering from Michigan to Ohio should get a lot of looks this time of year.(Hope it doesn't snow!)

You are so right. I do love the comments people make when you filling up for gas, etc. But my wife hates it because, the name of my boat is "BLONDES PREFERRED", so when we're driving down the interstate people (always slow down when they drive right up next to us and lean forward to see if their really is a blonde in the passenger seat! Every time we travel that happens.

Baja Daze,

I know what you mean, I have confronted people making comments about having a nice boat at a early age, 24yr. Screw them, their just jealous, I sacrificed not buying a house to afford my boat.

As for Jane, you are right I am very proud to take my boat places, Poker Runs, Parades, Tie ups, or just out with friends.

WILL

Sometimes its almost (ALMOST!!)as much fun on the trailer as in the water. I've gotten more attention towing it to the lake than I have on the lake. One of the better lines @ a gas station-"I fell in love with your boat until I saw how much gas you put in it!"

hehe i was just thinking about this the other day! For me its one extreme or the other...when people pass me up when i'm in tow they either give me a big smile and a thumbs up or some times (and this is usually the old ladies doing it) they have this disgusted look on their faces and shakeing their heads no....i think its from the saying "Have Fun Stay Single" on the back transome!!!

heheh

You are right. When I had my boat (a Z33) it looked huge behind my truck. I always thought it was cool and got lots of looks. Especially at the gas station where I spent a lot of time. It takes almost 30min to put 200gals in. I really liked passing large glass buildings so I could see myself. The next boat will be similar so I can tow it around and have the same feeling. BUT NOT A DONZI
