THIS ^^. Only draw back is the 2 year wait. I know, I’m still about 10-12 months out. You’re in the right price range. Lots of nice boats out there, but the Calcutta is worth a look

You won't have any problem. I tow mine with a 18' F150 4x4 with a 2.7 Ecoboost. 65-70 MPH. Regularly cross the Skyway bridge and isn't an issue.
