Pros & cons of towing boat with 1800?
Shopping around for a trailer to stow gear and found they all come in at least about 200/350 lbs and cost $thousands$ and dont store that much; so came up with this approach. why not tow a boat? Bought brand new aluminum jetski trailer, brand new Honda 3.2 outboard motor and a used Sears 12' rowboat. Tossed a 120 gallon storage box in boat for gear and covered all with boat cover. Total weight before adding fishing & camping gear under 275 lbs: cost under $2,000. Since the Wing is outfitted with a Towpac with a 5 ft wheelbase I feel pretty safe underway but have to allow more space between car ahead of me. Gave it a go on the interstate & it towed AOK @ 65mph. Dont know how this is going to work out on a boat ramp with only one drive wheel, so made up portable wheels so i can roll it into the water.
