    370ss how towable?

    I have a dually and I`m used to towing a Flatdeck at 15, 000lbs.
    Formula has it at 15, 000 dry plus trailer and gear, seems like it would be quite a load?

    Anyone with any experience?

    Towed my 400SS with a 2001 F350 Dually from Lake St.Clair to Hammond Indiana. No problem. Wide load permits and bridge heights are all you need to worry about .

    That`s a nice set up mark.. trailer is sweet. So how is it going from a speed boat to a cruiser. Ever miss the speed?

    One of the best parts of owning a cruiser is having it at the dock ready for you to enjoy! Your family can enjoy it at the dock and have it ready for you when you get home from work. Trailering a cruiser defeats so many of the benefits including a wider beam, 12-14 is a must, etc.

    So many powerboaters think that the SS formula is the answer when getting out of a go fast and moving to a cruiser, well it's not. Nice boats but they are not good at being a cruiser and not going to impress you in the performance department after having that badazz flatdeck.

    Outdrive suck
    Not enough room
    Not fast enough for a thrill
    Etc.

    The only Formula I personally like is the 40PC and the 48 sport yacht
    Gunrunner72 and hogie roll like this.
