After towing with the Freightliner I cannot imagine using anything else. You don't even know its back there and you can see around the thing a lot better than with a pickup. Besides that you can buy old trucks much cheaper than 3/4 - 1 ton pickups. The one I'm using is only worth about $9000-$10000. What does that buy you in a pickup?

Me too. I had a spare, but sold it to an oso guy that needed it badly. I thought I could just buy another one and replace it.

I've never really been much of a cat sort of guy, but your's I find very interesting. I like something different than what everyone else has. Try going to the Wellcraft dealer and tell them you want to buy a cat with surface drives!

In my opinion, you can never have to much truck when towing. Nice boat, I also like different. Doug
