The second attempt required $125 to a nice old gentleman with a mid-60's Ford Superduty 3ton(one learns from experience), next time she get to sit on a crane. The last truck I hauled her with (1990 D250 CTD/A-727) would spin some to get her moving.
LMAO

Amen to that ....

First timers will ALWAYS find a way to make the news .... All part of learning I guess ....

Nice daysailer ...

I hear you . Same here . I has the big ones now back to the small ones . Smaller are cheaper and nice for a day trip .

Up in New england , a 20 footer is a nice boat to have some traveling fun in . Had a 36 but way too much time and effort . Could n't enjoy myself .
