I never saw a 29 foot searay with a single screw. What year is it, or is it an optical illusion ? My eyes are not what they used to be

Perhaps the Searay is like the owner- had a screw loose and it fell off! Just kidding... I don't know the towing circumstances (maybe the trim tabs help stabilize while towing) but that picture certainly makes it look like it would be interesting.

single 7.4 w/B3.It pops right up and runs 43 gps.it's not meant to be fast.

The truck is pushing it.Brakes are my biggest concern.I certainly couldn't do this anywhere else but flat florida.

I've had no problems towing a 30' y2k with a Range Rover with electric trailer brakes. Well within capacity of the truck.

Perhaps it was driver error?

I don't understand what the problem is. I pull my 35 foot Nordic with
my Yamaha Rhino all the time. I guess some people are just incompetent.

Simply upgrading the rotors and pads from stock will make a huge difference. I did that on my 2006 Denali XL after toasting the front rotors/pads when I lost my trailer brakes. A good set of slotted rotors and better material pads made a huge difference.

Looks like you need another axle.

And some electric over hydrailic wouldn't hurt either.... let the trailer stop the truck..

When I read this post I almost puked - I just sold my 311 to a guy in Cincinnati. Looked at the pictures and it wasn't my old boat. I know she's not mine any more but she was a very nice 311 and it would have killed me to see her end up like that !!!

many were built with the 7.4L and bravo 2 setup. Large dia prop.
