Well, Im not the most sensible person,and looking back on the "adventure" I must admit to asking myself what the hell I was thinking.My boat I imagine being a keel boat with 900 lbs ballast is alot heavier than yours.I had modrate faith in the trailer it being brand new with good tires, it also is a single axle and I was constantly watching to see it fly off the highway.That being said there were places out west on Hwy 10 where the road was sweet, I sometimes cruised at 60 plus speed,not real smart!Things got worse after Dallas as there was a lot of road construction,and past New Orleans the road just went to hell,couldnt maintain traffic speed cause the joints in that lousy road caused the trailer to bounce a bit lots of pissed off drivers bhind me.No serious mishaps though and the only damage was the bow bumper on the trailer slipped down out of New Orleans and I wore a little spot of gel coat off the bow.
A Cat 22 should be a piece of cake though.
Anyway, my boat is half put together and hooking the standing rigging up is intimidating to me, so any kind hearted souls in the Ft Lauderdale/Hoillywood area willing to give a guy some advice it sure would be nice to get this baby in the water after the odyssey of getting her here.
