Re: Midlife crisis Here I come!

Dude, congrats on what has to be helluva a boat, and welcome here to our personal insanity.

Dumb questions, are you planning on trailer launching the boat? Do you have a crew to help for mast raisings? Do you have a truck capable of pulling roughly #9000 (minimum 2500 category)?

The boat's 9' 6" wide, is that "wide load category" requiring a permit? Sorry I am not familiar with regs, and I know smaller boats have that much beam and people get away with it (in fact my baby 22 is 8'4" and oversized for PA), I guess what I am asking is, what do you all do when you are over 9' wide? Hell over 8' 6" which I think is max for non-commercial.
