Yeah, nothing like motoring into your trailer at 2 knots becuase:

A. The little motor has no nuetral or reverse.
B. You have to use said motor to steer because it was too shallow to hang the rudder.
C. Ya got lazy and didn't use the oars intead after getting within ten feet of the trailer.

Gotta say, this little cheaply built boat is tough as nails. I've seen it chew up peices of someones new wood dock, absolutely DESTROY a trailer light, bend the trailer winch mounting post, all without any apparent effect on the boat.

I'm glad I'm getting most of this crap out my system before I go buy a bigger, more expensive and probably more tender boat like that C380.
