Not counting my drive to BV or back home after I drop it off... I'm sure the privilege of towing your sweet new boat behind my truck would be payment enough.
Wow - most boneheaded post I've seen in awhile. Talk about missing the point completely.
Lets spell it out. to paraphrase rafterman2007:
"if you're already driving from BV to Durango between now and next April you can make an easy $50 by bringing a raft over with you"
What part of that sounds like it isn't a good deal? Here's some help with the mental gymnastics. its a pretty safe assumption that if its an former outfitter's boat, like what Noah's Ark would sell off at the end of the season, say in September, it'll be rolled up nice and tight for transport, and would fit in the back of a Honda just fine. Lets see, 440 miles @ 30 mpg @ 2.50/gal = $37! Sweet, you get your gas paid for the trip TO AND FROM Durango and still have enough left over to buy a 12-pak for you and your buddy in Durango. All for spending an extra 10 minutes on each end of your drive from BV that you were planning on doing anyway.
