What are you hauling that's so heavy? Your truck is squatting quite a bit and your trailer tire looks like it'll be rubbing the fender on the slightest move of the suspension.

There's still a bit of clearance. Those truck campers are heavy. And that's a heavy boat. I'll say one thing though. That 3.5l twin turbo sure hauls. Yes, the truck looks squatted down a bit. But as far as stability and power, I had absolutely no problem. Very stable on the highway at all speeds.

Canadian eh!!!

So I had a couple of issues with the boat this summer. First, about mid August I took it out and when I turned the key on, none of the gauges worked and there was a buzzing sound before starting it. It would still start and run fine. There's an electronic control box on the engine that receives the signal from the gauges that was fried. Warranty took care of that.

Secondly, when I bought it in may, I paid for a bimini top roof for it. The dealership ordered the roof. It took almost a month to get here. When it came, the mounting hardware was missing. The dealership fought with the supplier all summer and in the process misplaced the roof so they had to reorder it complete new top and hardware. It finally arrived this week so I brought the boat in to have it installed before I put the boat away for the winter. I dropped it off at 8:30am Friday and by 11:30 it was done.

I got it home and into storage just in time as only 2 hours later it began snowing. My main concern was that I didn't want to haul it on the highway in the winter salt then leave it sit all winter covered in salt. Thankfully I avoided that.

Now I'd like to recommend that you get a box of mothballs and dump them in a disposable plastic container and slide it up under the cover on the floor. This is cheap and will discourage almost anything from taking up residence in your boat.

The boat survived the winter without any varmints. Lol. I scored a dock slip for the summer at camp. Top speed is 44mph with the motor trimmed just right. I usually go full throttle to get up on step then back it down a bit to a cruising speed of 40mph.

Nice. Awesome to have a slip!!

I tried mothballs and slices of Irish spring on our boat last winter. Still had mice and still have the freaking moth ball smell on the boat. f'in mice.

Funny thing is that I didn't have any in mine. The boat sat under the carport on the side of the garage all winter. No mothballs. No mice. Dad's boat was sitting in the yard shrink wrapped with mothballs and bounce sheets and he had mice.
