I currently own an 06 Honda Element, and I am looking to purchase a 95-97 PS 190.

Has anyone ever towed their boat with an Element?

Seen anyone tow their boat with something comparable.

Ahhh....NO! Good Luck! I wouldn't do it.:o

I had a 95 S-Series Blazer with a V6 capable of pulling 5000 lbs. and my PS205 pushed it all over the place.

1500 lb towing capacity?

Look at the towing capacity in your manaul, the boat weighs 2500LBS dry without the trailer, gas, toys etc. and your car weighs about 3700LBS. I don't think you can do it.

I have a 1991 PS 190 and tow with a Toyota highlander. The car weighs 6000LBS with a towing and cargo capacity of 3500LBS. With 4 adults, gas toys etc it's over 3500LBS, it does it but I don't have to go over any hills and not very far.

Short story long I wouldn't do it. I think you need a new tow vechile

Don't launch with it. When you try to pull the boat out the last element you will see is water, as your car gets pulled under.

I don't know about you, but slaloming or jumping behind a jet ski or anything but a competition 3 event ski boat is simply out of the question for me.

Well my old man was a mechanic back in his day, so I called him and asked him the same question. His response was: you want to tow with a Honda Accord turned into a bubble?

Hate to burst your bubble, but the Honda will be for sale after this weekend. I'm going to sell it and get a Ridgeline. As much as I love my element, I don't want to wind up upside down in a ditch with a totaled prostar and element. This makes me a sad panda! :(

Now here's the problem: I teach PE, I'm not a street pharmaceutical sales rep, so I do not have tons of cash. So hopefully I get what my car is worth.

i would not do it. i have a honda odyssey with a 3500 lb gross towing capacity with honda installed towing package. my sportstar + trailer are approx 3400 lbs making me marginal. i towed boat from iowa to our lake place in fla with no problems. i cruised between 65 and 70 mph staying in right hand lane and leaving myself plenty of room to stop. went through nashville and atlanta between 11pm and 3am so traffic and crazies were minimal. the vehicle takes considerably more distance to stop pulling that much weight making emergency stopping an adventure. if you must make an emergency stop, plan on seeing your trailer w/boat out your front passeger's or driver's window.

On second thought I bet I will be fine; I put in a bigger a header lock bushing, and I put on some stiffer suspension spanners so I can tow with it.

Does anybody know the best way to calibrate your radiator in order to tow a boat?

Sorry dude. I was just having fun with you guys; unfortunately I knew the answer to my question before I asked it, but I wanted to hear some good stories.

I don't have the money to buy a boat and a tow vehicle so I'm going to have leave the boat in the barn at my old man's lake house, and use the tractor to pull it the 3 miles to the launch, and launch it that way. Unfortunately this cuts back on my mid-week skiing around me.

My priorities are a PS 190 over a tow vehicle, because I cannot afford both I choose the boat.

I was gonna say the same thing, but I'm sure someone will jump in with 'I tow my X-80 with my Ridgeline all the time and it does great!'

The Ridgeline is the most marginal of tow vehicles. If you're going to upgrade, give yourself some breathing room and get a real truck.

If your Highlander has a 6000lb curb weight, you must have 2000lb concrete floor mats in it!:D Highlanders are a little under 4000lbs.

To the OP. If you're only talking 3mi to the lake, I can't see it hurting anything as long as you take it slow. I wouldn't want to run down the highway with a PS 190 in tow though.
If you do it, I'd chain up to another vehicle first time up the ramp to make sure the Element will pull the ramp.
I've pulled my PS 190 short distances with my '74 CJ-5. Wouldn't rely on it pulling the boat down the highway....I mean stopping the boat at highway speeds.
3mi is a long way with a tractor! Maybe get a beater truck to tow with???

Now that I have everyone's attention with this thread, the blue book for a 96 PS 190 with a LT-1 is 10K. Now I haven't seen too many anywhere online for under 12k. Are most MCs like nautiques and go for way above blue book value? What should I expect to pay for a 94-97 (I'd prefer a 95-97 hull)? I really do not want to spend more than 10k; do I need to pay more than blue book to get a decent boat?

Sodar

For $10k, you will be buying a high hour boat. A pristine 1995 can be had for anywhere from $12k to $16k depending on engines.

ok i do know that you were kidding about towing with the gt so i wont even go there, but yes the 3000gt really does have muffler bearings. its a replaceable part just before the muffler. it drops the exhaust out before the muffler.

just thought i would share if anyone actually cared.

Blue book for my element is $16k, I love the thing too much to sell it for that little. I would want to purchase a truck that is in the $20k range, so I'd rather keep the emelent (that's what we call it), and just buy a cheap truck strictly for towing.

I'm not any sort of expert, but it's always been my understanding that it's a buyers market from the end of the season through part of the winter and then as the next season approaches, prices start to climb again. Seems to me "now" is about the best time to be buying.

Do you own one? Have you towed with one? Have you ever even ridden in one? My guess is no, no, and no. Ridgeline tows a 190 just fine. You see I can answer yes, yes, and yes.

If you're looking for a tow vehicle I agree don't get a Ridgeline (get a turbo diesel) but if you want a vehicle that can easily move your boat when needed it does just fine.

No, yes and yes. I have driven one, I even hooked my boat (X-1) up to one when I was considering buying one and towed it a few miles. Didn't take long for me to decide that it wasn't enough truck for me. I also watched one struggle like a mofo pulling a Malibu out of the water on a wet ramp last year.

Now, all that said, a PS190 on a single axle trailer is a lot less weight and I'm guessing the Ridgeline would be okay for that.

And I'm a Honda fan. I've owned a great Accord and my wife drives an Oddysey. I looked hard at the Ridgeline when I was looking for a truck to haul my boat and my motos and was really disappointed. The capability and quality of it were below what I had expected, particularly for the price.

Don't get me wrong I would like it even better with a V8. You see I am a speed limit + many type driver and I wish there was more torque there on the highway for say a 70 to 80 acceleration without getting a downshift. I'm talking just driving no boat. But yes as you say, I tow a 190 on single axle trailer and it's fine including 400 miles on interstate type stuff. I wouldn't do it everyday (diesel) but a couple times per year without a passing thought.

You really didn't like the quality? Man that thing is even better than my Accord. :D As for price for me when I bought that was a selling point. RTL which is basically top of the line, heated leather seats, moonroof, CD changer, etc, etc was many thousand cheaper than I could get a domestic half ton (edit: similarly equipped).

Archimedes
10-28-2009, 06:12 PM
I didn't think anything about the Ridgeline was solid or substantial and the ride quality wasn't great. Rode like a small pickup. Bed was small, interior was tight and plasticy. For $7k less, i might have been interested, but not at the prices they were asking for it, which was right at $30k.

For $4k more than the RTL I was able to get a top of the line 4wd LTZ Avalanche with every option and DVD player. To me the extra money was well worth it, but some of that is just personal preference. The Avi is a beast and rides like a Cadillac.

Keep the element and go buy a very old pickup truck as a dedicated tow vehicle. 8 cylinders and some weight. Make sure the brakes are up to snuff and you're good to go. You can probably pick one up for less than you'd lose trading the element for a Ridgeline.

I'm a Honda guy, too. I have my little accord and a 9 year old expedition. Before the expedition, I had a 20 year old Jeep Grand Wagoneer. Sure, the mileage wasn't great, but for $3,500, it did a fine job.

Aren't Elements front wheel drive? If so, that would be the most notable difference.

Actually, a Ridgeline is front wheel drive under normal driving conditions. As needed, the VTM4 system transfers power to the rear wheels as well. See the article below, written by the guy who designed the system:

Find a 1999 Chevy Tahoe 4X4 for under $5000. The 5.7 liter V8 is very reliable. My wife's has over 260,000 miles and still runs like a champ. I found a 2 door with 132K miles for $3900 and use it to tow my X-14. My son's has 147K miles. Having the extra vehicle is also nice if one of the others needs to be put in the shop, but that doesn't happen very often.

I teach at an alternative school that offers no extra curricular activities, so my extra income has been limited. Tonight I have an interview for 2 separate coaching positions at another school, so if I get those, I'll be able to buy a boat! Hooray! Next comes the tow vehicle! I am going to be keeping the element, and I have made the decision of simply driving the 4 miles with it behind my element until I can afford another tow vehicle.

The issue with the element is the length between the front and rear wheels is too short. This means it will be easier to spin or rotate in an unusual way. I think it is best you buy an old beater like you and others have said. I know someone that just bought a rusted out 1974 Dodge pick up for $200! It would pull that boat nicely. There are deals out there.

I tow with a S2000... works great. Love my Gayliner, too!

Don't worry I'll post the funny pics when I have the boat behind it.

Those aren't the funny pics you should be worried about. The fear is that you wind up with one of those pics of a tow vehicle that got pulled into the lake by the trailer and floated away. If you search on here you'll come across a thread with some pictures that are alternately hilarious and sad.

I think you'd be fine towing with the Pinto. It's not a silly question at all.

Cant be real, I owned a S2000 and it had some decent HP but to tow a boat?! It is not even rated for a Class I hitch.

All of Y'ALL Are A Bunch of Sissys!!!

Farm and Ranch Rules say if you hook to it and can move it you can tow it!!!

Just beware of the boat ramp!!!

The rear has been modified to tow the boat, can't you tell?:D

Don't launch with it. When you try to pull the boat out the last element you will see is water, as your car gets pulled under.
That's hilarious...!
