We're looking at trading up in the New Year, moving from an 18 foot Lowe v-hull open boat (probably weights 1000 with the 70hp engine on it) to a Hewescraft 220 Searunner with hard top, and 115 Yamaha 4-stroke. We've been towing the little boat with a Chevy S-10, 6 cyl. pickup. The GVWR on that vehicle is 5150. Is it totally out of the question to use the little pickup to tow the boat from Soldotna to Homer and get it in and out of the launch ramp there? We would store the boat in Homer at a nearby boat yard.
