    I voted 0-50, but I don't live on the lake. I keep it dry stacked. Call them up, and they put her in the water within 30 min. Face the boat bow in, and they put it back in storage. Bow out, and they leave her be. Love it!

    We live in Northern Kentucky and the few lakes around us kind of suck. My boat will never touch the Ohio River, so we trailer quite a ways. We love Lake Cumberland in southern Ky and Norris Lake near Knoxville, TN and don't mind trailering 3-4 hours each way for a great day out. We also only purchased our boat late in the season last year and still trailered up to Traverse City area twice to spend long weekends on Elk & Torch Lake, as well as Grand Traverse Bay. That was roughly 9 hours each way, so I would estimate we did about 4K miles and will easily top that this year with a full boating season.

    Same here, but my place is the opposite, bow in they leave you in, bow out they pull you out.

    Do they put you in the racks stern first?

    They hook up a jet ski to the boat and pull it over to the forklift. The forklift places it on the rack bow in. The door closes behind the stern. Which is nice, because on several occasions I've gotten on the boat without having to have it in the water or on the wash racks.

    Last year doing 4 trips down to Lake Pleasant was a total of 668 Miles, a trip to Lake Powell was 448 Miles roundtrip, 3 trips to Lake Havasu was a total of 1278 Miles, so I guess we tow quite a bit with 2394 miles towing last year.

    Each boat trip this year will be a 320 mile round trip so we will be well over 2000+ miles.

    We do roughly 800-1,200 miles a year of towing to local state lakes and one trip each year to the panhandle in Florida (500 miles round trip).

    Between 2000 and 4000 per year. If I take the boat to Florida in the fall as well as the spring, it's 4000.

    Our launch is 75 miles away. So if I make it out 10 times a summer (a good year for us) we're at 1,500 miles.

    There are closer lakes, but driving around in circles would bore me.

    My trailer gets approximately 2 miles per year ... from the marina across the street to my driveway and back. I worry about it rotting away in the outdoor storage over the summer ... but I do visit it a couple times per summer to 303 the sensitive parts. :) It's amazing how 303 preserves the tire/rubber hose and bunks... not even sun-faded after 4 years!
