Re: Towing Vehicle




Regarding towing vehicles, I towed a new San Juan 23 wing keel that weighed
four thousand pounds plus trailer with an Olds 88. I had no trouble going
down the road and did not launch it. The people I sold the boat to towed it
with a Dodge polara, which was an ex state patrol car. I now use a Dodge
Dakota with a 3.9 liter engine for a tow vehicle, but I have downsized to a
San Juan 21. Only once have I felt the need for four wheel drive, and that
was when the tide went out beyond the end of the ramp. I could have waited
for the tide to come in, but one of the crew had a four wheel drive pick up
and pulled me out. I feel a V-6 that is kept well tuned would do the job.
Anything bigger would be for other uses or ego.
