I ran it hard twice! Once for Victor when he bought it and once during a survey for a guy from Connecticut who opted for another boat.

Both times it seemed to love being pushed and was very well-mannered and predictable. The engines are very capable and healthy.

You will love running that fine Cigarette.

They make a battery powered pusher for trailers. It looks like a two wheel trolley with a hitch and an electric motor. It will push the trailer into tight spaces as the wheels are driven. You could use that to push the boat in driveway once you lined it up with the truck. I cant remember where I saw it, try some of the boatyard supply companies. It was a lot cheaper than what you would be paying for storage.

Cheers,

Andy

Thanks Andy, actually Victor suggested that as well yesterday, I think those only work on flat there is an incline as soon as i turn in my driveway as well not sure how that would handle the weight uphill?. Went to a Marina yesterday that I can go month to month with for 150 bucks, that has great access to the bay and a good long ramp. I think I'll do that to start then keep exploring my options.

Have you been to the Nauti Goose? If you need a guide I'll be more than happy to help out. I've been boating on the upper Chesapeake for over 20 years (know where are all the low water spots are )

Still interested in your film product for my toolbox, I'll get in touch with ya.
