    Iv been on the Chesapeake 3 times now its one of the best places to sail iv been. Iv done some racing around the Annapolis area. and a friend in VA has a Catalina we have take out for a day sail after racing on the 44's.

    Cool Photo from the last time I was there. They actually run race committee from the edge of the breakwater on the navy academy. very few places I have been when its easy for people to come watch.[​IMG]

    Hells Bay Whipray Professional, these are like some of our trucks, they are for the backcountry where most boats can't go.

    I like the old Nova boats, well built craft. Always flush the engine well and use marine head gaskets, they have stainless in place of regular steel. Same goes for thermostats, totally different than car stuff, but I've seen them fitted and destroy the engine in one run. Car stuff doesn't belong on a boat motor even tho they fit, the results can be deadly to the motor and people. My Donzi has a 351W which I believe is original (1990) and still going strong. Exhaust manifolds will be the first to rot and often give the impression of a head gasket, water on plugs and in the oil. I've seen engines replaced/repaired because of bad manifolds because they didn't know it wasn't an engine problem. You could fit it with a closed cooling system, but unless you put a lot of time on salt or refuse to flush out it'll never pay for itself.

    Just noticed this thread. Lots of nice boats and interesting types from across the country. Here's my desert cruiser, fun for the family and pretty good for fishing too. Searay, 18.5'

    Thanks. I'm not for sure on the boat... dry weight is probably about 2000lbs, say 3000lbs loaded, with trailer. But the tongue is surprisingly heavy, like at least 300 lbs. I don't like to tow this with my poor, old, worn Tacoma... especially with no trailer brakes. My 2500 HD tows it like nothing.

    3000 sounds like a reasonable guess and if it is then 300 on the tongue would be the standard minimum recomended, 10%. Some will tow well with less, some need more. I had a jet boat with almost no tongue weight (maybe ten lbs?) that towed awesome on a tandem axle trailer, but that's not recommended. My Donzi is 6K and has about 400 tongue and tows fine. With a single axle and small outboards they generally need more than a tandem axle and/or heavy engine, but it all comes down to the package.

    Looking at your trailer photo I'd guess that you are over 10% and probably why it tows well.
