Re: Looking to purchase- advice

Thanks for the links. The reason for the maximum 10ft beam is because widths over 10 ft requires you to have safety cars with orange flashing lights fore and aft of the wide load trailer. That takes 3 people instead of just one to transport. 10 ft seems like the magic number for most states.
Also, I wouldn't want to put the boat on the hard every year, just every few years for maintenance. I believe a travel lift can place the boat on a trailer just as easy as it can place it on stands. Then for few dollars more have a crane un-step the mast, then head down the road.
