What's bad is two weeks after you winterize, it's 75 degrees out.

Norco, it's forecasted at 75 degrees for the whole upcoming week, /killself. I did the winterization myself so I suppose I could change my mind but it's all cleaned up and the bags are (as you can see) already out so I doubt I'll do it.

Jon, I've never tried to tow my 24 with the 4Runner. It's only a V6 and although it is rated at 5k lbs max I don't trust it. I used to pull a Mastercraft X7 with it and it didn't like it very much then, so I know my 24 would give it hell. It's also a 2wd, and it would have trouble pulling the X7 out of the water sometimes (boat-power-boost ftw!) It also has 178k miles, which you never know what will happen if you make it do too much work. She's my daily driver, I tow the boat with this:
