Since the publication of Chapman's Trailerboat Guide more than 10 years ago, a lot has changed, from state laws regulating trailers to available equipment. That's why this thorough revision and expansion of that manual, written by Trailerboating Magazine's Senior Editor, is a must-have. Packed with full-color illustrations and photos, it covers all the basics: from individual explanations of the boat, trailer, and towing vehicle to a complete discussion of how they work together. You'll find out about common problems and how to anticipate the things that can--and sometimes will--go wrong. There's an on-the-road checklist, information on maintenance, and advice on accessories. With this knowledge, you'll be able to boat safely and efficiently wherever a launch ramp's available.
