Love it. Any idea the total weight?

Too bad boats can't easily be turned around the other way when towing. A Bow-tail would be more aero than a sturn-tail.

I've moved everything from an apartment to a house last month using a 4x8 trailer, and have made lots of trips to buy used furniture and appliances. Heaviest load was probably a king size bedroom set made of solid wood. Just the headboard alone was heavy for 2 guys to move. No idea what the weight was, but 1 of my 2 straps broke while on the freeway. The harmonics of the wind was just right to cause it to melt through. I tied the strap back together and continued on without further issue.
