That's 1400lbs? My truck pulled 6x12 trailer with 2 atvs, camper shell and bed slap full of supply's. No issues at all. Just had to kill over drive cause it was constantly searching for a gear.

yeeeaaa about that... That boat is not 1,400lbs. I will be GENEROUS with my calculations.

Trailer= 100lbs
Boat= 400lbs
Motor= 100lbs
TOTAL= 600lbs. And that is being generous.

The boat and trailer was probably about 900–1000 pounds empty, but it was fully loaded down. Probably 1200-1300 total, including 8–10 gallons of gas, and some sandbags.

read above the boat and trailer don't weigh all that much. But fully loaded it was probably 1200-1300 pounds.

I just guessed 900 for the boat and trailer and motor, 60 pounds of fuel, 300 pounds of sand bags and about 80 pounds of water (2 5 gallon containers for the fish we didn't catch). Plus other supplies.

I definitely can't move it by myself. Me and a friend could push the trailer but we couldn't pick the boat up.

Seems simple enough, guys...either the boat is built heavier than yours, guys, or someones not getting out!
