While your F-250 Certainly will be capable of hauling the boat, if I remember the Cal has a fixed keel which will probably require a custom trailer.
Also, check the beam on that boat. It might be a wide load.

If a man is to be obsessed by something, I suppose a boat is as good as anything, perhaps a bit better than most - E.B. White

Yeah, the boat does have a fixed keel, but it doesn't seem much wider then most typical sailboats of its size. I'll have to make sure though.

I found a deal on a boat and trailer combo with the price at 1200. The boat thats on it right now is a 22 foot I think but the guy said that my boat might fit as long as it was under 7000LBS. I figured that was the best deal I'm going to get if the trailer actually works because hopefully i can just sell the boat for a decent price to someone else fairly quickly.

Do you have the website for that towing company? I'll probably end up googling it later, but if you had it that would be nice.

Weight

My Seafarer 29 is listed a dispacement weight of 6600lbs. When I had the boat lifted out it was 4820lbs with only mast, rigging, and swing keel. The displacement weight of 6600lbs is the tolal (people, supplies, outboard motor, exc.) at the waterline. Your boat displacement is 5400lbs it problaby weights about 4000lbs. Have the crane at your marinia give you a rough weight reading.

1. The Displacement weight is the actual weight of the boat.
But the easiest way to find the weight of your boat if it is on a trailor is to go to a truck weight station and weight your equipage, truck, trailor and boat. then put the boat in the water and go back and weight just the truck and trailor. The difference will be the actual & Displacement weight of your boat without the weight of you and your crew on board. The people weight you will have to add to the displacement for total weight.
Is that simple or what?
