    I’ve bumped into one that looks well maintained in my search for a trailer able cruiser. I know these are too beamy to trailer.

    Wondered if anyone has a 70’s vintage that can describe performance numbers, cruise, wot, fuel consumption, and how they handle rough water.

    Can you trailer one off the water in the conventional way for service? Or do they require hoist?

    Any experiences are appreciated.

    This 2-foot-itis is a baad bug to have.

    Ahh. My 29’ Chris Craft had a 10’ 4” beam and was very trailerable at the same weight.

    11’ 6’ is pushing it a bit as far as permits and whatnot but just popping in and out for repairs?

    Yup. It comes w a solid looking bunk trailer. I’d only use for service and storage. Save on haul out fees I guess.
    Wonder how these run on the water.

    Never mind. Someone purchased the boat without survey nor sea trial! Geezus.
