    Yep! She’s been nothing but sweet to me and when I need her she can be a bit spicy and drag anything I need..

Here my lovely wife is showing us how 5’ 1” gals get the SUP’s off the roof. So for the record 4 SUP’s 4 paddles, 2 windsurf masts, booms, and sails. It is the adventure pig.

    Okay you guys have me a little nervous with all of these big trucks. I am driving 4 hours this weekend to pickup my new C22. I have a Honda Pilot with a towing capacity of 4,500. I'm good to go right?

    I’ve used a 2007 Toyota Sienna for a 80 mile trip twice a year with no issues. Basically flat an level. I have done this for five years.

    My "new" vehicle is my '93 2wd 5.7L Suburban with a newly rebuilt transmission with beefier aftermarket parts. It was already optioned with a tow package.
    I only tow from the yardspace to the crane twice (hopefully) every season. :redface:

    Seems adequate for short distances in flat terrain but I just cannot picture a safe situation where you can trailer a long trip on the Interstate at 70MPH.

    Ya, we don't have interstates here, the max speed on my route is 70km, brakes on all 3 axles, not a problem in the world!

    We crane in here, not one sailboat in our club uses the slip, (approx. 100-110 boats)
