I never thought of this until now,duh. The new boat I bought back in the day didn't come with a trailer jack or lug wrench. Why the h-e-l-l not?

Are they now included in the new overpriced boats?

I have to carry a small floor jack and a socket + breaker bar in my truck.
Just in case I have a flat.

Not that I'm aware of. Good idea, but they'll jack the price another $500. hammer

None of mine have come with it. I have the 4 point lug wrench and the truck jack along with a bottle jack. That covers it. A spare tire and mount are less than $150.

No complaint here , just wondering why boat manufacturers aren't including a jack and lug wrench with their high dollar boats.

Would you really want some piece of carp like you get with your truck? I have never seen a utility or a TT either come with a jack. I just carry my floor jack, a 4 way, & 12v air compressor in my truck at all times. I have a CM and rarely have 4 passengers so I can just leave the stuff in there. The last time I tried to use my vehicle jack on a boat trailer an 18 wheeler came by and dang near blew the boat and trailer off the jack.
