When it comes to transom boats, the biggest draw of the sport is the price.
That’s because it’s a boat you pay to use, and it’s also a boat that requires no special training or equipment.
And if you’re not the kind of person who can handle the thought of being in a boat for hours, you can’t beat the $1,500 price tag.
Plus, you have the option to hire a professional boater who will take care of everything from rigging to rigging, to rigging for the water, to putting the boat up and taking it to the next level.
In addition, transom rentals are all booked online, so you can rent out your boat at any time.
But what about the experience?
It may seem like a great deal, but there’s not a lot to be gained by going for the boat you want, and some people say it’s not worth it.
“I think there’s a huge disconnect between the transom experience and the boating experience,” says Liz Breen, who has worked as a commercial boater and transom operator for the past decade.
“We’re seeing a lot of the people who are doing the business for the transoms being on boats that aren’t as safe or as well equipped as the transos that they’re really into.”
What about the safety of your own boat?
When it’s time to take your boat on a trip, it’s important to take care.
When it gets dark and you have to use your lights, it can be hard to know where to put your boat.
But you can also ask someone to help.
“If it’s dark out and you need to set up, it could be a little tricky to find someone to put a light on your boat, so I try to get someone on my boat that I trust,” Breen says.
And it’s up to you.
“It depends on the situation and what you want to do.
If you want something simple, it may not be as practical, but if you have a larger boat, I think it’s something you should look into,” says Tom Kostek, owner of the boat rental site Boaters for Life.
“Transoms can be very dangerous, but it depends on what you’re doing.”
But if you don’t want to pay the big bucks, you could always hire a private operator who’ll help you plan your trip and take care in the event of a crisis.
There are plenty of private operators available, like one on the Gulf of Mexico who offers boat rentals for the entire length of the Gulf.
But there are also other options available.
“The private operator in the Gulf is one that I’ve been doing for the last 10 years,” says Matt Kast, who owns a boat rental business called the Kast Boat Rentals in Lakeland, Florida.
“And there are private operators in the gulf that are more geared toward boating.
I’ve done it with my boat, and I’ve had some success with it.”
But don’t think you have no chance of getting the job done.
If it sounds like you’ll be taking a boat with you on the road, try booking a transom rental and have someone set you up for a safe and enjoyable boating adventure.
It can be a very rewarding experience.
