GoodOldBoater is on a distinguished road
1. No brakes on trailer. Original surge brakes non-functioning and removed.
2. Total Boat weight w/ motor and gear 3000 lbs plus Double Axle trailer approx 1000 lbs.
3. Tow Vehicle 2008 LR2 SUV (3500 lbs towing capacity).

So that Puts me 500 pounds over weight limit for my SUV - and no surge brakes.
(I did tow it home and have moved it around the yard but that's it.)

I guess I could get the whole thing weighed to be sure?

1977 North American Spirit 23
