I have only been towed once, last week a guy in a power boat asked if I wanted him to tow me back to the launch. Normally I would have said no thanks, but my wife wanted to go shopping. Our son was home sick so one of us had to be home with him.

I won't do it again if I can help it, didn't care for breathing the exhaust. Don't get me wrong it was nice of him to it.

I will do it with the trolling motor but not a gas motor.

Going out again tomorrow, launching at 10am. Planning to meet up with some other guys, one of them really knows his stuff. Maybe I can learn a thing or two.

Never been towed by a gas motor before... doesn't sound like fun.

Good luck tomorrow.
