Well I think if I keep my Jeep I hae narrowed it down to Catalina 26 or 25 and the Tanzer 7.5. I could possably do a Starwind 27 if I dont mind losing the Draft. If I dont keep my jeep then I have no clue, I guess I would have to find a vehicle first

I had a trailer built for it by Loadmaster Trailers, Port Clinton, OH.
It wasnt a custom build just one of their standard trailers - cost
in the realm of $4700 or so.

Try a little faster boat with a shallow draft .
It will get you to put-in-bay a little quicker

I have always really liked the style and concept of the Corsair but I just cant justify the price.

Sailormon6 will become famous soon enough
I had a Catalina 25, loved it and would recommend it highly, but wouldn't try to tow it with a tow vehicle with a 5000# limit. The boat itself weighs close to 5000# dry, and the trailer adds another 1500# or so, and, when you add the weight of the motor, all your toys, food, water, fuel, etc., it'll be too much for your Jeep. If, however, the engine is powerful enough, you can usually increase towing capacity somewhat by adding air shocks or spring boosters, and a transmission cooler, etc.

engine wise I know it would do it, tranny wise I doubt it, even with a cooler. I will probably pick up an F250 in the next few weeks and go from there.

F150 would probably do. 3000+ cash back right now. Tow cap around 9k. No more than you will pull it, it would probably be fine and 10k less.

(Ugh, now I am starting to sound like I know what I am talking about on cars... better stick to boats.)
