Saw this on the road today . . . lol

A bit off topic, but this was too good to not take pictures of. The boat is a Bayliner. I have no idea what the trailer is, but obviously intended for a much smaller and lighter boat.

This other pic shows how off-center the boat is on the trailer.



He's about 15 miles from the lake at the point I took the photographs. Headed towards it. LOL.

Naa, I'd say that was a Bayliner trailer. They suck as much as the boats.

Yeah the only thing that concerns me is the safety of that setup lol. It makes me nervous just having to drive nearby! Once he gets to the lake I'm sure he'll be fine.

Agreed, Hell I learnt to ski behind an I/O that was not as flash as that! Besides they are only a light boat and I think it looks like it is tied down. I bet there are people on this forum towing some rusty trailers under their boats.

Hey Cloaked I like the trailer post still hanging on the front of that boat on the Highway. The boat doesn't look to badly damaged, better than the drivers underwear I bet.
Have Fun.......

Funny, my friend who has a bayliner that he bought new 6 years ago may argue with you about the suckage.

He has had zero, I mean zero problems with that boat

It runs good, wakeboards well, heck I even skied it a couple of weeks ago to try it out and I could ski behind it with no issues


I'd like to find one mastercraft owner who bought their boat new that can say the same thing when it comes to having zero problems with it

I had a Bayliner for years that I put 500 hours on, drove hard, put away wet, changed the oil, and drive oil once, and NEVER had a single issue with it.

Bought a Mastercraft and have something to work on every time I take it out! lol

I didn't buy my 96 new, but...

Since bringing the boat home in 07, the only work I've had to do is winterize and de-winterize. It's been the best boat I've ever had. Now, I just need to move off the gravel roads to cut down on the dirt!
