Yes, this is true. I guess what I was trying to say is, based on weight, I would go single axle if I could. If the boat weighs more than 3k or so , tandem is probably a must. Here's a single axle for...

Dual axle doesn't necessarily mean it's better. I just found out the hard way. 22' 3k lb boat on a dual axle trailer rated for 4500lbs. blew a tire 2 miles from home. No spare with me. I pulled off...

Depends on the Colorado. My brother had a 4cyl stick shift 2wd and I wouldn't have towed anything more than 1000lbs behind it. It could barely move it'self, never mind have to start and stop a 5k...

That thing is super clean for that price. Every boat similar in New England for under $4k is a total mess. Like the other's said, buy it, have fun with it. Can't go wrong for that price!

I'm not going to get all preachy here like a few people will I'm sure. I'm guilty of enjoying a few while boating in the past. This is absolutely horrifying. Puts a lot into perspective...

I was under the impression that the deal was going through and the guy had a few questions. Nevermind, I wouldn't talk to someone PRIOR to the sale, that's a waste of your time. Only if they bought...

Agreed, there is a big difference between a full gut and rebuild, or just buying a used hull and sprucing it up. My plan for my next boat is a 24'+/- walkaround for cheap with a running motor, I...

The fact that people are telling you no is just crazy to me. You have zero liability in talking with the buyer. you do not own the boat any longer and are not the one selling it to him/her. You would...

This is the ugly before picture. I didn't get many pictures, but you can see where the tie bar and steering arm connects. This was the port side looking aft. I ended up replacing the tie bar ends and...

I redid the steering set up on my Chris Craft Commander 31' and used Clevis pins and a cotter pin to secure them. Fun fact though, when I got the boat I noticed on the sea trial that the steering was...

I had 350 crusaders in my 31' commander. 270hp models, I ran them at 3000 to 3300 rpms most of the time. Running 3300 to 3500 is ideal, any more than 3500 and you are pushing them hard. I cruised at...

Okay, I'll just agree to disagree I guess. This guy wasn't asking about getting a new motor to solve his "problem" of not being square. We are talking about a boat and motor already produced and in...

nice long post there. Okay, so then I'll ask this, what if he cruised at 35mph at 3k rpms, would he then have to add more pitch to reduce his rpms to match? Do you see now how dumb this whole...

This is complete gibberish. Are you suggesting that a boat with diesel engines MUST run slower than a gas powered vessel because running "square" is more efficient? when you change to KPH-KNOTS-MPH...
