Boating Fail: Boat Retrieval Blunders

Double-checking every connection ensures a smooth boating experience.

After a long day of having fun on the water, many boaters are probably in a hurry to get the boat loaded on the trailer and head home. Unfortunately, that often means neglecting to double-check that the trailer is securely seated and latched on the tow ball, and that the safety chains are hooked up. The results can vary from mild embarrassment to costly damage or painful injury.
