Thanks for all the help and ideas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have to agree with SD, you better do a double take when your wife tells you what you want to hear.
5 years of trailer sailing with a 22 (typo last time) does make you appreciate when you get out on the big pond with a little more leg room! John we might just see you down in the BVI'S, the Windward's were great last year.
Due to the short stack of fun tickets we muster up each year it will be a while until we can afford a big boat, BB Charters for now!
Back to reality, 8'6 is legal width here and for $43 a year we can pull up to 12' without a pilot car. After that you need a pilot in back to 14'. So I figure up to 32' x 10'6 around 6 ton I can pull pretty comfortably with the rig I have now. My backhoe weights in around 7.5t and it makes the squirrels whine when we go over the pass.
Now tri's are fun and fast, maybe I still need those training wheels when I get over 15 knots but I can't seem to find my pants with that deep of pocket. Keep the ideas coming I'm all ears. J

28' lancer

As far as my shopping for a bigger boat went, I found a couple of Lancers in 28 foot range those could be trailared... Check them out, they seem to be spacious...
