    What's the weight? On the basis that I would think it is nowhere near the 6,500lb capacity of your truck, you'll be fine.

    Tacoma will be no problem as all models of the Chris Crafts are well under the towing capacity.
    You experience may be a limiting factor though. If you have never towed a boat, you will need to take it slowly with a learning curve. Don't let other drivers piss you off. Most city folk don't take into account the 6000# load behind you and cut you off. Get used to it!:D
