Here's a story.
Father-in-law bought a spanking new pontoon boat.
But, if you buy a boat you need a trailer. So add that on.
If you have the boat on a trailer you have to have a truck / vehicle to pull it.
Add it on.
Ok, so he was set.
By the time the weather was right and everything he only used the boat about 2 o 3 times that first summer.
He put it away.
He thought he'd used the fuel stabilizer properly and all that.
Next season he pulled boat out and tried to start it. No go.
He talked to dealer. "Well, this that the other thing."
Dealer took it and supposedly got it running.
He got it back and it was running rough.
It was back and forth and he lost the season due to running rough.
End of season he dismantled the engine and cleaned the carbs by hand.
Third season he used it about twice.
After that he got busy and now he's older and can't lug the boat about.
I say rent one when you want to use one.
