We don't have a trailer. Instead, we use Dagmars for all out haul-outs. I do all the routine maintenance on the Yamaha F300 and T9.9 kicker. The boat needs to be out of the water for this service. The anodes also have to be replaced about twice a year. At Dagmars, they launch the boat, they retrieve the boat. Princess service! The staff at Dagmars are awesome!
