going downhill will suck on your stock brakes.

also, don't 'dawg' the jeep when you are pulling. let the motor purr and rev when it wants to hold hills. low RPM and 'bogging down' will kill a tranny fast (creates a lot of heat) let the motor work and hopefully IT doesn't over heat lol.

I'd be surprised if that boat/motor/trailer weighs 3,000 lbs. I could tow it behind my bicycle. You are fine. Don't tailgate.

P.S. The more important question is what do you know about boating? How do you handle crossing situations? Reading buoys? There are too many clueless idiots on the water these days. Don't be one of them. Take a boating course. Or at the very least pick up a copy of Chapmans Piloting and READ IT. Cheers!

Plus one on that one. I come from a boating family and before I could even touch the steering wheel when I was 15 (that's the earliest legal boating age in Indiana with a permit) I took a Coast Guard approved course. I feel like that should be something everybody does. Im only 17 now, and I hate to say that I know more about boat driving and courtesy than probably most of the people at the lakes my family goes to, just because most people just don't take the time to learn.

I'm in the class already. Tonight was the first half. I'm a very responsible 17 year old. I don't do stupid stuff or bring idiots in my vehicle ! Tomorrow is the second night .
