  1. PB Open Water
    Hello all, I bought this sweet rig almost a year ago with the intension of pulling a boat with it. Well I think I've finally found the boat and I'll be going out to Lake Havasu to look at it next weekend. If I like it, I'll be buying it and towing it home. It would be a 26' day cruiser...

    Anybody have a good source for a towing cover? I'm in the Temecula/Corona area. There's a shop down the street from mine in Elsinore that wants $1000, not sure if that's ballpark price these days or not. Thanks for any suggestions.

    How’s everyone feel about towing in the water? If you're running a low freeboard boat and helping another boater out by towing them in.

    I have a 20.5 open bow on a dual axel. The bumper reads max tow 5000lbs and 500lbs tongue weight. The boat is apx 2500lbs but unsure about the trailer. Do you think it would be ok to tow with this truck or would it wreck the bumper?
