It does pretty well. I've become spoiled by pulling it with the 3/4 ton all the time, so obviously it feels like the boat is pretty substantial behind the Benz. I'd say it tows better than any 1/2 ton truck would, but at the same time I'll never pull it the 6 hours home from my lake again without the cummins...

Any of you towing with one of the Ford Raptors? Tow rating is 8K lbs with the 4:10, I would think that the suspension would be really soft for towing. But man, they do look like they would be fun without the boat hooked up. Anyways, just curious...

Nice 88 prostar 200! Don't see many of those, got any more pics?
Funny how they used the 86 hull with 87-88 gelcoat scheme.
Oh, and welcome to teamtalk!
