I'll never do it! Some say it's not worth more or less at resale time, but I looked at 5 boats before buying my current one. All of them had been beached and it was very obvious. They all lost a sale because of that, and I'm sure I'm not the only one that passed on them.

I'll help you beach that Nor-Tech customryder

I FOUND IT IN THE GADGETS FOR SALE SECTION OF EITHER POWERBOAT OR HOTBOAT I BELIEVE. I WILL CHECK THE TAG ON IT IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS WHEN I GET OUT TO THE SHED AND SEE IF IT HAS A MANUFACTURER ADRESS OR PHONE NUMBER ON IT. IT WORKED GREAT EXCEPT WHEN I TRIED TO USE IT ON A RIVER WITH HEAVY CURRENT. I BOUGHT IT IN 1999 AND ONLY USED IT A FEW TIMES. IT SITS IN MY ANCHOR STORAGE ALL YEAR WITH LITTLE USE.

LOL! me too.

It's funny, people buy REAL expensive vehicles and don't worry nearly as much about them as they do their boat.

Don`t beach very often even if your boat is 19 years old

We have a guy around here who owns a Top Gun. He won't let you on the boat with shoes but would rather you walk on the deck with socks on. Lord knows he wouldn't dream of pulling the boat up on the beach, the whole 9 yards.... yup, that kind of guy.

He's always on the boat by himself!
