No need to apologize! Our friends down South may not appreciate how short our season is in New England, and how we're all looking forward to getting back in the water, whether that's catching blues or towing skiers. And I bet at least half of the folks interested in tow kits are thinking about towing their boat. ($1,000-plus is a silly amount to spend if all you want to do is hitch mount your bike rack).

Don't depend on what the dealer tells you it will weigh. Good for peace of mind and if there is ever a problem it is nice to have to show that you were within the limits of the car's towing capability.
Very good advice, indeed.
