Pikes Peak I said. Theres a friggin conspiracy of sparrows here, all swarming against the lone eagle. One eagle vs 100 sparrows, that makes for one glutted, happy eagle.

Lone Eagle or Wrongway Corrigan? if the boat is that easy to push, why don't you just call ambulance company beforehand and offer them like 50% of what they would charge to come pick you up later, to just come over BEFORE and help you push the thing into the garage. they're usually strapping lads. with big biceps, and fabric stretched taut across their o never mind.



Otherwise i still say push is way to go.

I think you should be just fine as long as you replace the "doohickey" first.

I'm pretty sure you could use the motorcycle to get the boat and trailer in motion. Stopping it might be another matter...

I'm pretty sure its going to be a challenge getting it in. I can move the boat with one hand on the dealer's shop floor (on a trailer with a one-wheeled tongue jack), but its going to be much harder to move on an uneven surface and 10 deg grade. The KLR 650 is what I've got at hand, so thats what I'm going to try. No room to manuever an SUV. It'll be another week or two before the boats prepped.
