To the ass hat that side swiped my trailer and bent the crap out of my right trailer light bracket and my fender! Thanks a lot ********. I hope karma comes back around to bite you. Beautiful day and return to that.
Similar experience for me at Merwin 10/18. Found a perfect replacement LED starboard side replacement light assembly on E-Trailer for about 50 bucks. Was able to straighten the bracket but concerned about a compromised galvanized finish.
Curious how often us fishermen do that to each other.
The number of googans at the ramp lately has been impressive. Been seeing a ton of people trying to dump their boat off the trailer, inability to back, and hard starting boats. You name it....
Still recovering from the 4k in damage from someone sideswiping my trainer two months ago. Progressive and koffler have both been good to deal with.
Some times I wonder if it isn't the buddy trying to help out. With lack of experience towing and in a rush to make it back down too the boat to fish probably didn't even know they hit something. Or didn't properly park and the trailer is in the way of the other guys buddy picking up the trailer to take out and didn't notice taking you out. (Seems like a visious circle)
I used to let friends park the truck and trailer for me while I back the boat off and prep for the trip. I had trailer damaged multiple times. Now I do it my self and knock on wood (I will probably regret this) haven't had a problem.
My current tow rig crew cab full length chevy diesel with a winch bumper and a 25' LOA boat on a heavy duty trailer with 3' of tongue and motors hanging off the back doesn't fit in just any parking spot. Not sure how the guide do it. Plenty of potential in a parking lot that's for sure!
Hoping for a dent free 2021!
