All,
It seems that this discussion has gone a bit sideways. The boat is what it is.

Sorry about that Randy. I am waiting for a couple of answers if anyone has them dealing with both the weight and the front deck access. It may not sound like it, but I could be a serious prospect for the purchase. It's just that I am in Canada for several days.

Thanks for bringing this boat to my attention.

Moonstruck, you are losing another excuse. The Vegas were built this way, assuming it is as designed, with access forward.

This site has loads of info.

Run your bow line along the side and tie it to the side rail so it's always ready and buy a windlass, Don. No worries!

At around 17,000 pounds not counting the trailer, you might be biting off more than your F-250 can chew.

I think it's obvious as to exactly who I was referring to.

Walt, is it just me or does Don bear a resemblance to Ernest Hemingway in that picture?

Could be Craig, but it looks like it's coming to fist-a-cuffs.

When I went searching for a Willard 30 on a trailer, this one popped up. Looks like the same boat. No Photoshop. Here's a link for the photo.

Looks like it was right after Walt insulted Don's boat and just before Don got even.

That one picture brings to mind three Hemingway quotes:

1. The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.

2. An intelligent man is sometimes forced to be drunk to spend time with his fools.

3. Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.

Well, Ernest did have more hair on top. But then, balding is a masculine thing. Leastwise, that's what I say to my Dad observing my diminishing head-hair.

Mark, I say to let those who want to waste their harmones growing hair do so. We have better things to do with our harmones.

Sorry, I have been out of the loop for several days. Been in the North woods of Canada. No phone, no internet, not TV.

Looks like our F-250 and 10.000# trailer would be a little lite for a 2500 mile haul with that load.

Also, I did not see a door on the pilot house. Is there one?

That boat would sure be some fun in the San Juans and on the lake at home.
