Can't you borrow a truck from a friend or family? Or if you're profile is up to date... put a hitch on a car and you should be able to tow a jetboat or a 20 footer.

If it comes down to it, you can probably find a $500 beater on craigslist, register it tomorrow, use it for the weekend, and list it back on craigslist for $600 on Tuesday.

Or, last resort, start calling hertz, avis, enterprise...

If it were me, I'd use a tow strap and a moped to drag my boat to the launch ramp with the tongue jack down before I called it quits on labor day weekend, especially with the weather we've had this summer.

Maybe you could use the boat to pull your truck in to the water! Oops I mean to the lake so it doesn't feel left out...
