I have a 2014 2.7l tacoma regular cab 5spd 4x4 and i wanna know if my taco can retrieve my boat from the lake.
My boat is a 1973 Starcraft 16' long 4'6" wide and all i have ever used to launch and retrieve my boat was a 1997 chevy 1500 that got totalled out by a deer therefore i purchased the taco. Most of the ramps i use are either concrete, or expanded steel grates, most are decent grades into the water a few are steep and a few have sand covering the concrete ramp.
The boat has a 1968 55 horsepower Evinrude Triumph outboard on the back.
I am unsure of the weight of the boat I got it as a bonus from a remodel.
Usually there are 2 adults one over 300lbs, one at 165lbs, one kid approx. 100lbs, 5lbs of bait, 18 pack of beer, cooler, 8pack wine coolers, 4 cans of soda, 5lb bag of ice, 6 rods and reels, and about 10lbs of tackle in the boat on a normal fishing trip. Not counting the 4 to 15 3lb+ northern pike, 15 walleye, 25 perch, and possibly a few catfish.
