  • Re: What do you pull your boat with?

    I pull a 1989 Invader 19ft open bow, with a 2006 GMC Sierra Z71. Trucks got a lift and 35" BF A/T's, so it hurts alittle on the big hills. You definately know its there when your on the high way.

    I dont think that Ill lift my next tow vehicle at all. It signifigantly hurts the gas mileage, towing or not towing. My cousin has an 06 Titan with 35"s under it and his 2 waverunners disappear behind the truck. Overall not real pleased with the 5.3 V8 in the GMC.

      I tow my 87 glastron ssv-187 with my 1992 F-350 crew cab long bed Non turbo diesel 4x4 sitting on 35's bumper to bumper the truck is 23 feet long... yes i measured... boat ramps can be interesting as this thing turns on about a 5 mile radius

      around town i dont know i am towing anything at all, on the freeway the lack of a turbo makes long hills annoying to say the least.

      im in the market for a cummins turbo diesel.......

              We pull our 2005 Bayliner w/trailer with a 2008 Pilot Ex-L V6. We did not get the towing package (trans. and power steering cooler), just installed the trailer hitch since we only plan on pulling it short distances. After we purchased it we pulled it about 60 miles w/little problem. Only minor hiccup was gear shifting when we hit some hills.

                      17.5' alluminium pro bass Princecraft Prop-170 with Honda BF75 Outboard used to get pulled behind a 2.9L 1990 Ranger (SO-SO) Then Behind a 1997 F-150 Lariat 4x4 ( Excellent ) And now a 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser! You don't even know its there behind the FJ....but I really think the trailer is overlooked by most people. I have a low slung trailer with 15 rims.....so it should ride well. The Fj is rated for 5000lbs. so I'm in fine shape that way.

                                17ft Bayliner ski and fish. It is an easy tow.
