Just wondering if anyone else is towing a boat with an Accord. What size, type, weight trailer config etc. Pics would be awsome. I have a no-drill draw-tite 1.25" with a 2,000# rating. I think something with a max tongue weight of 350# which sounds real low to me. now that I have a efficient car I could actually maybe afford a small boat lol, but I might now ba able to tow it!
What a ironic situation. I'm looking at either a 16-18' Center console Fiberglass boat with something like a lightweight 90HP engine. OR... the jon boat route and get something like a 16' Aluminum 40HP "big boy" style jon boat. really wonder if either are towable with this accord.
Did some Spec research:
17'-6" CC Fiberglass Boat is avg of 1,000-1,300 #
Avg gas tank capacity is 30-40 gal of gas; 210 #
Avg 90HP outboard ranges from 250-300#
Single axle trailer wieght??? Have not found this. So far I'm approx at 1,810# on the high end, 1,460# on the low end. If it really is possible I'd be buying the lightest boat, trailer and engine and trailer. 2,000-1,460=540# for a trailer, which sounds like enough. So I'd be maxing out with a 17'-6" boat..... Might really look into this for real after the Holidays. Just looking for a boat I can take out every 6-8wks with a total of 4 adults on the intercoastal and lakes and cruise/fish w/out breaking the bank. Be kind of scary launching a boat with FWD. Sure be a first.
