Let's see your best pic of your Titan pulling the boat!

I just bought my new Titan a couple days ago. What a beast! I got it to not only hauling my dirtbikes on the weekends,(instead of trailering with the Jeep), but MORE IMPORTANTLY, I chose the Titan to haul my anticipated boat purchase in the spring!

Let's see the boats!

Well, that's a good thing. I'd imagine it's a nice boat or you're underestimating the power your Titan has.

Here is one of me parking my 2007 Sea Doo Challenger 180.
How much fun is that jet boat? I heard they can turn on a dime! I was thinking of going that route, but decided the i/o is best for my docking experience, and the type of boating I'll be doing in general.

It's really fun we are still trying to work up the 10hr breaking time. We planned on going out alot when we go it but it never worked out. They are really bad at very low speeds for control but I am still learing new tricks to get past that. I am still to used to my jetski so I have not mastered the quick turns in the boat.

Here's the Chaparral 254 behind the Titan on the way back from Lake Powell.
Your Titan looks tiny next to your boat. I'd be freaked out towing something that large behind me.

Do you have problems getting up the ramp? I'm looking at a couple of boats in that size range and I'm worried that my 4X2 will have traction problems on a wet ramp.

Ditto. I'm also looking in the 24' range. I was also wondering about getting something like that up and out of the water......

It does make the Titan look small, but it's not nearly as big as some others tow on this site. If you search for the "What do you tow" thread, there are some really impressive boats in there.

I've never had any problem pulling it from any ramps. I've actually traded the Titan in the photo for an '06 Armada and haven't had any trouble with it either. As Demondw3 suggested, manually shifting to 1 and slowly applying the gas until it creeps out of the water has worked well. I've had a couple of places with loose gravel, sand, or broken pavement that I put it in 4lo just to be safe, but I don't know that it was necessary.

Aside from the ramps, the Titan towed our Chap up and down the mountains to Lake Powell, across the Rocky Mountains in our last move, and through Chicago in rush hour during a torrential thunderstorm (far worse on the nerves than the mountains). We never forgot the boat was there, but we also never had an issue with accelerating or stopping (after the 04 brake fix).

Go find yourselves a nice boat and start enjoying!

Hey Racefan,..... how do you like that Deckboat? That is what we have our eyes open for. Looking for a Searay Sundeck year 2000+, 21' plus. Or a Rinker Captiva 22' +. In fact, the big reason for my new Titan is to prep for the boat.

I like the idea of the deck boat for the space for the kids and their friends, as well as our friends for adult night, airshow, 4th of July, local crab house, tubing, wake boarding, ect. The porta-potti is the selling point for me. I don't care to hear my wife or daughter complain about not having a toilet.

You like it?

yes i wouldn't buy any other type of boat after having a deck boat. my wife had to have a bathroom and it's great not to have load and unload all your stuff each time you go out. we just float out in the lake, no need to go to a cove or beach it. plenty of room. i'm very happy with this boat. It's a starcraft aurora 2015 and it's 20.5 ft long with a 3ft swim platform.
