Re: Trailering a Pacific Seacraft 34
There was a guy in our area who used his F-450 pickup and an adjustable trailer. He sold his services for doing JUST what you are talking about. He only did point A to point B though, no launching (HOIST?)... so it could be done... I found the same trailer the guy was using used for $8500, so it's possible.
I personally have a Chevy 2500 HD, geared for towing. I regularly tow #12000 (horse trailer 30 feet long) with the truck (rated to #13800). So a 3500 could do it for sure (equipped right). Right trailer, blah blah.
SHNOOL <- whose 9'2" wide boat is only 8'5" when it hits the road, gonna be hard to convince the troopers of that at 10' wide... honest! Just kiddn.
