So now I understand that the boat is too heavy for a trailer
Should I then carry the Durango on Deck ?
After all my Irwin citation 40 is a centerboard and a little weight in the center should help!

Just make sure you have some nice salty teak brackets to hold it secure amidships, and keep the rubber off your decks - it'll be a pain to clean otherwise. Say - in addition to a little more weight, it'll also give you some more windage...you'll probably go faster 'downhill"?

Keep the Durango off the deck. Better as ballast.

Just install some u-bolts in the roof and hang it from the davits.

I hear Hunter is coming out with a 45-I......an inflatable blue water cruiser, that will easily fold down into a pop-up camper sized trailerable package. The Mast is telescoping, and will collapse to a 12 foot pole.

Seems the original poster was fooling, but isn't the 32' Seaward trailerable by a one-ton pickup? The same F350 crew cab dually diesels that are launching 15 foot Bayliners, driven by guys looking at me like I'm crazy for launching a 17 foot boat with a six-cylinder station wagon.

The best trailerable boat that I've seen is one that I used to own. It was a Harstad 31 Motorsailer.

She was a 31 foot, center cockpit, ketch-rigged sailboat with an eight-foot beam to keep her legal on the roadways. She weighed in at 8000 pounds and originally came with a trailer.

Although Crealock designed her, I imagine that he was trying to pack too many features into this small a package. She had a lot of pluses, but she also had her down sides.

She was not a good sailing boat unless you ran the diesel most of the time. She was a bit narrow, but had 6' 7" of headroom throughout. Although she was center-cockpit, the aft cabin was separated by the engine room. It was roomy, with two bunks and storage, but the separation was a problem.

Just thought I'd throw that into the mix.

Assuming it is NOT an April fools post,,,,,,, then again, with thefrencha only having 5 posts since 2003.....one never knows, then again, the poster could be an unknown sock puppet.......but lets get back to being serious instead of not........

I believe Bob Perry designed a "Container boat" a few years back, I believe that boat would qualify, as IIRC it was 8-8;4" so legal from with width stand point. Weight wise, do not remember, could be a bit heavy for a light duty SUV. a 25 series SUV or other 8 lug rig with a larger motor, should not be an issue........bridge height wise with the keel on could also be a potential issue.........
