I'm pretty sure the deck on all Com-Pac's are cored with foam and not balsa, so you don't have to worry so much about soft decks, but that also might just be newer ones? Some posts in here indicate...

I sail the Great Lakes, and have guns. I don't carry on the boat, who is going to attack me on lake Erie? The Canadians? LOL! I do plan on circumnavigating though, will I try and carry? Probably not....

Don't let these people try to tell you your tow vehicle isn't up to the task, it is. I safely towed more weight than that often with a Plymouth Voyager which had similar power, much less reliable...

Well that looked pretty easy, I have a similar boat but the mast weighs much, much more than 75lbs. No idea what a Soling mast weighs but a Hunter 27 mast weighs at least 175lbs. It's massive, and...
