Re: Boat worth price?

"Why do you think you need a 3/4 ton+ truck to pull a 4000lb boat on a 1500lb trailer? I personally think 4LO and a high tide are important if you launching/retrieving at a ramp. But it doesn't take a large powerful truck to pull 5500lbs up a ramp or along the highway."

I over estimated the weight of the boat and trailer. Yep, most half ton PUs are rated to tow at least 5500. I corrected my original post to reflect this.
