BoatUS Offers Easy Way To Explore
New Boating & Fishing Grounds
ALEXANDRIA, VA, August 11, 2008 – Are you bored with your local waterway?
Trailering boat owners and anglers don’t have to settle for the same old water or fishing holes thanks to a free, online BoatUS Launch Ramp Locator at http://www.BoatUS.com/Trailerclub
The BoatUS Ramp Locator offers thousands of locations to launch a boat including municipal or state boat ramps, marinas, boat clubs, private sites and other locations that offer trailer boat access.
“We don’t just give you a ramp’s address - we’ve included all of the important information you need to make a decision, whether you’re looking for new weekend cruise location, a new fishing locale, or just thinking about venturing a little farther,” said BoatUS Trailering Club Director Beth McCann.
Trailer boaters and anglers can take advantage of the Locator’s detailed boat launch site descriptions including parking information, hours of operation, boat size or motor restrictions, water depths, docking facilities, camping information, local services available, and contact information including Web site links and phone numbers.
McCann also says if you know of a boat ramp location not listed, you can get free trailer ball hitch cover from the Club by submitting the information online.
For anglers, fishing tips and species information as well as information on water depths and stocking programs are also included.
The BoatUS Trailering Club is part of Boat Owners Association of The United States – the nation’s leading advocate for recreational boaters with 650,000 members. For $29 a year the Club offers 24 hour a day roadside assistance for boat trailer and tow vehicle breakdowns while towing, launch ramp fee rebates, and a subscription to BoatUS Trailering magazine, featuring information on towing techniques, how-to tips, trailer boating destinations from across North America and more.
