    I wouldn't even try that with my H1. It takes a 1 ton dually to tow my 35'. Good luck

    Anything over 8500lbs. without a dually is asking for it! Let's just say for instance, The brakes stopped working....Make sure you tell him to duck when the blenders come past!!!!!!!!!!! [COLOR=limegreen]

    Well, I can tell you from personal experience that big boat and short truck = boat on side in grass. Years ago when I was young, 1981 or so I used to tow my 36 cig around with a 1975 Blazer, this was a full size one, you know the same sheet metal as a Dually or Suburban. Equalizer hitch, built trans, big block. Had no problem as far as getting the rig moving but every lane change or passing truck was an adventure.

    My buddy Jim Gaffrig (god bless his departed soul) was driving, we were heading down to Ft Lauderdale for our annual migration just outside of Bowling Green Kentucky when I woke as the whole rig was oscillating back and fourth across all 4 lanes, it did this a couple of times, worse on every cycle and BAM we slid sideways into the median. The boat wound up on it's side, the Blazer almost went over. The trailer really did a job on the rear quarter and tailgate.

    The good news is that we weren't hurt, and much to my amazement the only damage to the boat was grass stains on the cover. We did however brake a few bottles of the 12 cases of champagne we had in the cockpit.

    12 hours later after straightening the trailer axles, new wheels, new front spindle on the truck and a bit of swearing we were on the road again, moving much slower this time.

    That was the last time the Blazer pulled that boat.

    HFN- He's f'n nuts!!!

    The H2 is actually stouter than a tahoe, has a beefier tranny and i think a 14 bolt rear but it is still no match for that setup.

    One thing that helps (but it's deceiving) is that with the very short rear overhang the hitch weight gets a lot closer to the rear axle, making it handle more like a gooseneck. With that said it probably tows better than a lot of other rigs- at its weight limit.

    The short overhang also makes it look like it's handling the tongue weight well even though it may have way to much on it.

    He's asking for trouble if he tows that boat out of the boatyard!

    With all of that weight right behind the rear axle; I would be surpised if at a quick take off, that H2 does not do a wheelstand. I forsee a giant teeter-todder effect.

    I know this was probably meant as a joke, but, Just remember, lifes too short, enjoy that Tiger, we have had enough boating accidents and fatalities this year, I wouldnt want anything else to happen.

    THE CONCENSES ARE: NOT A GOOD IDEA!!!! Building composite fishing and pleasure catamarans.

    Let Thou Educate !!!!!!This H2

    What Jeffrey failed to tell you was that this H2 is being equiped with an Eaton Supercharger, new Computer, and exhaust, this will boost Horsepower to 470 and Torque to about 580lbs.

    For those of you that havent stood next to an H2, its about as wide as a dually and has much more stability in the front. It also weighs more than a 3/4 ton Suburban 4x4 at 6700lbs, shares the same transmission, and has a more intense frame structure. The transfer case is a Borg warner, with a crawl ratio of 33.1, running on a set of 35 12.50x18 Mudders!!!!!!!

    So Common guys, I think I'll wait a couple of hours for you to CATCH UP! before I order you a Vodka Cranberry while im waiting for you at the London Bridge Hotel staring at my Tiger in the water!
