Since you have around the same size boat, anything I should be worried about?
Love the Four Winns nice boat , seriously looked at one of those myself, but went for the 24 ft 244FSX ( price was right) with the 320 Hp Volvo Penta dual prop which moves it along pretty good

Edit. From the 2013 manual:

Quote:
If the gross trailer weight is 3,500 lbs (1587 kg) or more, it is mandatory to use a weight-distributing hitch to ensure stable handling of your vehicle.

Great looking boats! When we were in Fort Meyers last year, we rented a 26' SeaRay bow rider with a 454 I/O. Oh, what fun, until we had to refill it every day!
