Thoughts on a bass boat in the bay or should i rent a boat.
The bass boat in the bay should be ok, but be sure to give a thorough freshwater washdown, both inside and out, when you're done.
If you have a painted trailer, you may not want to dunk it in saltwater. But otherwise, just be sure to wash the trailer down ASAP every time you dunk it in the salt.
