Re: Largest Trailerable Sailboat

MedSailor makes a good point. Sometimes with bigger boats it is better to let the pros do their thing. especially early on in a sailors career, moving even midsized sailboats with crane\travel lifts...

That is exactly right. obliviously the crew in the video are experienced haulers. But I think
