I agree with the first answers, that you probably are not going to get a fully outfitted DE23 on a trailer for 3500 lbs. The P19 you are now considering is a better choice. Just don't try to get 10 lbs. of stuff in a 5 lbs. bag. You aren't going to be able to get the same accomodatons in a 19' boat...

Range depends on how fast you go, type of engine etc. but there should be no problem to get 200 miles out of the 34 gallon tank at moderate speed. There is room for much more fuel if you need it. Upriver, against a 3-5 knot current? One of the guys in my club has a 27' Searay with 60 gallons of fue...

Where do you plan to use it? Lake, river, ocean-inshore, ocean-offshore? Primarily on Thurmond Lake, the Savannah River, and occasionally trailered to other lakes and rivers, such as Hartwell, Murray, Oconee, etc... Also, there will be the occasional ICW trip from Charleston or Savannah. I don't pl...

C-19 Questions for builders

I'm now looking at this model, because I think the DE-23 will be too heavy for me to tow. Does the area on either side of the motorwell in the transom have to be so deep? (back to front). The reason I am asking, is because I really want to extend the pilothouse a little, enclose it, and utilize that...

Lancer, We all go through the same process and have budgets. Boomer brings up a good point about brakes. In addition to the law, most midsize pulling vehicles have a fairly low weight where the manufacturer states that a trailer must have brakes. For example, my chevy venture has a towing capacity ...

As to DE23 Qs

Buying a new truck is financially out of the question, but thanks for that suggestion. I bought what I could afford. LOL I thought about all of those things, and while I can't see trailering it with full fuel tanks (I'd fill up dockside) or a full load of water, etc... I can see how these things add...

DE23 questions

Can this thing be made trailerable? I see it listed with a hullweight of 1,500 lbs, but I'm sure that the fitting out (fuel & electrical systems, engine, a/c, galley, head, etc) will add some considerable amount of weight to the total weight. I have a vehicle capable of towing 3,750 pounds. Is it po...
