Another in my list of newbie questions... if one has a sailboat in the 20-25 ft range, how powerful of a vehicle is needed to tow it? Would a 6 cyl. truck or van do the job, or is something a bit more meaty required?
We pull our Cal 22 with a 2000 Chevy S-10. It is a 4x4 with the 4.3 liter V-6. We pulled the boat from California to Colorado. We also have pulled the boat over a mountain pass here in CO. The boat weighs about 2300 lbs and the trailer another 800 lbs.
The truck seems to have plenty of power and now that the trailer brakes are working the stopping is much less stressful to passengers.
