Not a bad option for the poor suckers who only get to have 1 boat

When my river boat buddy came with us to the lake he thought the calm, calculated maneuvering around the dock and shore was very strange. He is used to ramming it wherever he wants to go. Of course he was blown away by the pull, the wake, and the tracking. His wife preferred a day on the water with me over one with him. (Maybe part of his plan though)

It took me a couple tries to get back into the hang of docking with the X2 after only riverboating for the last 4 yrs.I was used to running up on shore when unloading by myself and leaving the boat running to hold it there.Or running right up onto the dock to get the intake out of the water to remove weeds.lol.

It has a transmission cooler and the stock hitch has a capacity of 5000 lbs. The 3.7L V6 puts out 300hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. I know a V8 would be preferred but I think pulling a 3500 lb boat should work, even full of gas. Thoughts?
It would be tight but I think you can do it, we pull our boat a crownline 4200 lbs including trainler and stuff with a mercedes E220 break 165 hp rear wheel drive, it mai pull 4800 lbs and it needs going to pull a x2 next year... so I think in you position it's possible if you know what you're doing on the road
