I know you're trying to be helpful, that means very little

Adding at the other things, outboard, fuel, trailers etc. You could easily see a tonne.

I reckon that your worst bit is the towing up the slipway. You get this licked and the rest should be easy, providing you meet all the legal requirements of course.

Was just trying to show what you can find with a bit of research that's a starting off point
People need to put there brains in gear and find out stuff before they buy Like would you go and buy a 6.5 redbay and tow it with a ford fiesta cos someone did.

We had a Delta 5.5 with 100hp Yam 4 stroke (not light) single axle trailer. We weighbridged it once 960kgs, not crap inside and no fuel.


New boat is here, very happy!
