ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 23, 2010 –- No matter whether you trailer your boat across the country or simply across the marina parking lot to the launch ramp, keeping its trailer in serviceable and safe condition is important. Now boaters and anglers with questions about boat trailer maintenance, safety and repair can get free advice from the BoatUS Trailering Club’s “Trailering Guys,” two experts known for their down-to-earth guidance who can help ensure your boat makes it to the next launch ramp.
Like an auto club for boaters and anglers, the BoatUS Trailering Club offers roadside assistance services for disabled tow vehicles and boat trailers. The Club’s Trailering Guys are Dustin Hoover, owner of Legendary Trailer Repairs, a mobile trailer repair service that specializes in trailer chassis repairs, and the BoatUS Foundation’s own Ted Sensenbrenner, a lifelong boater with years of practical trailering experience shuttling his own boats to races.
The Trailering Guys take questions from BoatUS members and share them in each issue of BoatUS Trailering magazine, the official publication of the BoatUS Trailering Club. Now the duo — who sometimes approach a subject from different points of view — is accepting questions from any trailer boater, and can be reached by e-mailing them at Trailering@BoatUS.com or by going to www.BoatUS.com/trailerclub .
“We want every trailer boater and angler to know there is help they can call on,” said BoatUS Trailering Club Director Beth McCann. “This is one more benefit to being a BoatUS Trailering Club member that we’d like to open up and share with more boaters and anglers,” she added.
The BoatUS Trailering Club offers an array of helpful services for trailer boaters, including 24/7 roadside assistance that will tow a disabled boat trailer and it’s tow vehicle up to 100 miles to a repair facility of your choice for just $14 a year (in addition to regular BoatUS dues of $24 annually). Battery jumps, fuel delivery and launch ramp winching are also offered. A $10 West Marine store coupon is included with all new memberships. Additional services and benefits include launch ramp fee rebates, a launch ramp locator line, discounts on marine supplies, and a subscription to BoatUS Trailering magazine with information on towing techniques, how-to, new products, trailer boating destinations and more.
