Welcome to the board.

Trailer, do your self a favor and OVERSPEC.

That means buy a trailer one size up from what you think you need. Bigger tires, axles, etc.

A SB 30 w/ tabs, etc...5800 lbs sounds too low w/ gas and equipment. Go for at least a 6500 lb trailer.

Good Luck w/ the boat.

Thanks again all -
TMANN - don't even start on me about the Donzi - my eyes get watery, it was a very hard decision, but I simply don't have the room. I will own another Classic one day, no doubt.

Thanks wannabe on the trailer advice, I'm leaning that way as well, but want to find some hard numbers - John says the vessel is 4500 'rigged', so I'm not sure, but I hear ya on the oversizing of tires and hardware.

Miarageman - John is cool once you get him to open up a little, we're having a blast now, and he's been real straightforward; send me PM when you get closer and I'll tell you how I did the financing, it does take a little work but is do-able.

Pictures will begin asap, in the menatime I'll try to pacify myself on our slo-go cruiser (now being well known as the anchor boat !) and bum rides from my buddies.

4635lbs w/hp500 efi. APBA scale, maybe a little bit of gas. I think I have a 7000lb trailor, does that sound right?
