The boat is big, but it is really
light, far lighter than competing trailerable cruisers. It is light enough to be towed
behind standard sized cars. We consider that the weight of the 26, with all normal gear,
is the maximum practical weight for easy ramp launching and trailering.
The 26 is just under 8 wide, and can be legally trailered everywhere in the United
States. Most of our competitors are over 8 wide, and require permits for trailering
in many states, including New York, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Oregon, Illinois and Arizona.
Many states also place severe restrictions on over wide loads, including limitations on
weekend travel. At best, getting a permit is a hassle, and no one needs another trip to
the local department of motor vehicles. All states prohibit loads over 8' 6" without
a permit. It is best to check the laws of all states or countries in which you wish to
travel. You may not get stopped if you are over width, but if you are involved in an
accident, the lawyers will certainly be interested in the width of the trailer and boat.
to keep the boat centered as it goes on and off the trailer. There is also a ladder at the
front of the trailer to make it easy to get up on the boat.
