    you need to go watch the video I linked on a thread (that I started) in the trailer and transportation forum. The guy towed a big trailer loaded with a F350 crew cab dually with a little JD 314, I think that's what he had anyway. you should have no trouble pulling the boat out, just make sure you get it on video lol!!!!
    Nothing could be finer than riding my JD790 in South Carolina!!
