I'm not even sure you can go anymore hardcore than that setup as a whole?

It seems like Nashville Cats had a trailer that slid backward for shallow ramps.
On the Nashville Catz, we had tires on hydraulic rams like you see under My Way in the previous pics. We were the first ones to add that to help launching on shallow ramps. The trailer was so low to the ground so that the boat was under 13'6" when tilted that we had problems with short or shallow ramps. The tire deal worked pretty good and American added them to most all of the ones after that.

Towed to FL and back to VT DOI about 10 times... So about 30k miles stopped once... pleaded innocence and got the "get a permit but I'm not your babysitter and I'm leaving" speech after I checked out.

We used to dump the Nashville Catz trailer in salt on a regular basis. Just got to hose it off really good when you're done. Never had any problems with it that were caused by salt.

It magically shows up at poker runs!!! I've owned it for over ten year and haven't towed it once. I owe a lot of Thank you to people over the years for that one. Plus we always have a lot of fun!!!! It would be a very entertaining book to read on how Freedom US1 gets around. I dont think I really want to know all of stories. I'm just glad its there when I get there!!!
