currently waiting for my new boat to be built and it should be delivered. later this month. 3000lbs dry + 1050lb trailer = 4050lbs dry. by the time its loaded up, I assume ill be 4500-5000lbs. this will be the first thing im towing. anything specific I need to know? trips will be relatively short; about 10miles each way, a couple times a year. Atlantic British tow harness and hitch are being installed this week.
