Personally, I would miss the flybridge but you have a wonderful boat, the trailer is "frosting on the cake"

The way trawlers are selling these days it won't be on the market for long.

Looks like a beauty

Do you have a real world, loaded and ready for a trip combined boat & trailer weight?

Imagine the places one could go...

I assume you're referring to your boat's flybridge, because I've never seen a Nimble with one....

I have not weighed the whole rig, but I had no problem towing it from New Bern NC to Edenton NC, about 100 miles, when I bought it. Towed it with my Tundra, 5.7 liter motor. If I recall, the boat alone weighs just under 7,000 lbs. And the 8'6" width means no oversize permits required.
