Broken Down On The I-5

My BoatUS ANGLER membership was put to use last October while towing my boat down I-5 just north of Sacramento, Calif. I had just fished the Triton Owners Tournament on Clear Lake and was heading to San Luis Obispo to leave my boat for the winter. I had just gone through the town of Woodland and looked in my mirror to see smoke billowing from my passenger- side trailer tires. By the time I got pulled over, one of the tires on that side was shredded. There wasn’t enough tire left to hold while I loosened the lug nuts. I got all but one of the nuts off. The corners started to round off on the last one. I knew if I made it worse, I’ d be in more trouble. That’s when I decided to call your 24/7 Dispatch and get some help. I thought I was going to have to have my boat taken to a repair shop to get the last nut off so I could put the spare on and continue down the road.

Less than 30 minutes after calling the number on my BoatUS ANGLER Membership card, the tow truck arrived at my location on the side of I-5. The driver was able to remove the last nut with an impact wrench and get the spare on the trailer. From there he followed me to the tire store that your dispatch customer service person found for me. I ended up getting three new tires on my trailer. That one use of my membership paid for itself and then some. As long as I own a boat, I will continue to renew my BoatUS ANGLER membership.

Thanks again.
