Default Launch with a crane ?

In general ... at events that have cranes ...how much is the charge ? If you have a steel trailer and dont want to dip it in Salt ...

are you talking races or poker runs? For races there is not a charge that I am aware of.

Poker runs are anywheres from $300.00 to $600.00 in and out. They usually charge by the foot

I could understand if was an all day job, but it's 10 minutes work I just pull through the first drive through full service truck(semi) wash and they will hose down the truck, trailer, and boat for $50.
