It is GM's suspension. The Duramax/Allison combo is great, but the suspension underneath is geared towards a better ride vs a work truck or for trailering close towards it's limits. Good Luck. Jeff

Your truck should be more than enough for that boat, are your brakes working OK?

Ive been giving Rich a hard time, we were going, then he was having problems with the motors so we thought, and (now really does) possibly it was off. Then I got extremely busy at work and Sandy and I were not able to make it. So Ive been just bustin his Kahuna's. I am taking off for LOTO and staying with John (mentlepause) for a few days. That sound also like alot of fun. . Jeff

Nice Sean glad you launched in '07.

See if that truck and rig can get down here to NJ around Saturday, August 4th and run the NJPPC run with us ... or any other weekend would work too for that matter I would love to see that boat in person, with all the work you've done on dash and 'bilge area' during last few years, and running the ocean where it was born to run

I might even think about taking it off your hands someday

I still think the Cafe has the best looking lines of any offshore boat. Looks great!
