I'm a biology professor and captain (though never used the thing). I've been sailing since college days. Owned a Macgregor 26 then an Endeavour 38. Been high and dry for awhile and hope to buy a trailerable pocket cruiser soon.
Sailed SE coast, Bahamas, VI, St. Martin. Extensive travel in Caribbean.
Gunkholing all around SE and beyond!

Hi Paul, Thanks for the info. Maybe the paddling is the better activity. My Dad went to school in Aville but I've never been there... sounds like you drive to the coast .. Charleston for your sailing ?
Paul, you had asked me if I thought a Ford F100 would tow the boat and trailer and I thought I had sent you a reply but it looks like something happened to what I said.
My reply was I am not familiar with the Ford but I had also used a 2001 Dodge 1/2 ton pickup to tow the boat and trailer, I would never try to launch from this pickup. I have also used it to tow my car hauling trailer with my 1920 model T Ford to and from Texas. It did the trip but the SUV's were better towing the car and boat trailers with load.
Paul, My trailer weighs 1,520 pounds and I have used a 2001 GMC Yukon Denali XL, a 2005 Cadillac Escalade, and now a 2008 GMC 4 wheel drive ¾ ton pickup. All have done a good job but the Yukon was the best of them.
Paul, as usual I forget to say all I wanted to. You might want to look up on Yahoo Groups the Bayfield group as there are many knowledgeable Bayfield owners and a treasure trove of posted Bayfield information at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/bayfieldyachts
