I wonder if the extra weight of the boat on the trailer in heavy rain plus the slick conditions could cause an accident. I think "auto bilge pump" should be a defense to having the plug in.

Invasive species. Weeds and other critters get into the bilge water and then released at other lakes.

I have heard they also ask about ballast bags and tanks.

I remember in Wisconsin you could be fined if there were weeds hanging off your trailer while on the road. I think it was Eurasian milfoil that was the worst. Had a friend in high school who cut the weeks for one of the local lakes and he said that stuff could grow a foot a day!-2012 Supra 21v

Just my routine, I don't like to deviate from it because it works for me. I also like to make sure the boat is dry and if there is any water left in it hopefully it will drain out. But it should be dry as the boat is left very nose high in the driveway. My kids are too young to drive the truck, but are great on the dock. Don't have a wife to drive the truck. Loading and unloading my boat is a quick 2 minutes like you.

Boat Launch idiots!!
We really never have too many ramp idiots on the river where I ride, maybe that is because it is so far out of town that the weekend warriors just don't come. I have never seen anyone swim at the launch before, maybe that sign that says "DANGER: GATORS AND POISON SNAKES" keeps them out?

I need to get one of those signs and put up at the ramp!! I bet it would reduce the idiots... The thing these people dont have is common sense when at the boat ramp - family tree must be one limb with one leaf
