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.
"Rum Line" an S2 7.9 - cheap, fast, trailerable, and paid for.
