Default Poker Run Question

Here is a question for those of you that have done poker runs. Is there access to a crane or travel lift at the majority of the events?

When I get this Apache to the point that it is presentable, I want to start attending as many of these events as possible. The concern is my trailer situation. I currently have a painted steel dually trailer and do not want to dunk it. The current trailer is in need of a rehab, so I am also looking at the possibility of replacing it with one exactly the same or very similar (possibly a gooseneck dually). Again, I would not want to dunk this one either. I really like the painted trailer because of its looks and options (water tank/wash down system), but will go with an aluminum one if I have to.

So, I hope that some of you can answer this from experience. From what you have seen, is there generally a crane or travel lift available at poker runs?

As always, thank you for the info.

Talking Some do, .... Some don't.

May I have a ride? Now that I got that out of the way!!

PRA always has a crane.

NPBA, (NYC) had a crane.

Some of the smaller ones do not, like OPBA, Tampa Bay area. ......But there are other advantages, beautiful water surrounded by white sandy beaches, great food, great people, tee shirts included too!! ...Did I say great people....COME ON DOWN Labor Day!!!

The Little Creek Regatta Poker Run (this weekend) has a place lined up that provides this service for free. For other runs that I have been involved in you would have to contact a marina in that area and arrange for the service. I paid $5 a foot in Miami a few years back.

sgrady :I do have the Apache back. We went to Lake X with the race boat last week to do some testing and then went to Bluntstown to get the Apache. The engines were finished, but were not back in the boat yet. I did not have the time to sit there for a few days to wait for them to install the engines, so we moved the boat to Tres and his crew @ Martin Marine. They are going to dyno and install the engines and do some other miscellaneous things while it is there.

I figured that Ft. Lauderdale is not quite as far out of the way as Blountstown. We are in that area (Miami/Ft. Lauderdale) with the race boat quite a bit, so it will be no big deal to pick up the Apache from them when it is finished.

I'll post the results of the dyno when I get them.

"The Little Creek Regatta Poker Run (this weekend) has a place lined up that provides this service for FREE..."

HOTDUCK, as Cig said we have FREE lift service from a participating Boatel/Marina (Marina Shores, Va. Beach) that will easily handle your boat. You're only 3 hours from our event. Read the posts on the main forum and/or Poker Run discussion forum for more in depth info on our event which is always scheduled on the first weekend of August. It's going down this weekend and late registration is up to Friday at the captain's meeting during the first of two party's....Check it out and come down this weekend if able...
