Found my 1997 catalog and the 2800 with a single 7.4 dry weight was 6633 lbs, so with twin your weight does seem correct.

Keeping your boat at home in the off season is nice. I know a lot of year round boaters who don't own trailers and keep their boats in the water or have them pulled for the winter. Plus you save the cost and maintenance of the trailer which can be spent on a couple lifts for inspect and wash & wax.

Thanks Mike and Moonriver. Feeling more confident with your guidance.

Yacht broker sez no problem. Tundra has V-8, 4 WD, clean shallow ramp, straight shot to the road and 1.5 miles to my house.

Mike, you might compare the advantage of a triple axle vs tandem axle trailer.

As well as the cons. The 2800 is under 29í so the extra cost and maintenance of a triple axel should be part of the equation.

Please note the beam is over 9í so this is considered wider than most states allow without a special permit for override. The short distance and non-highways decrease the probability of getting stopped.

Sorry for delay on updating. Last weekend closed on our new house in Cape Charles. 4 days work in NJ meeting with Lockheed Martin. Sold our house and did walkthrough inspection. We are under contract and have a few things to fix, but now they have to be done by a certified contractor, plumber or electrician.

Back to the boat. All going great to good. Sea trial all engines performed well with temps, oil pressure, maneuvering. Up on blocks for engine and full boat survey.
Port engine had low compression on two cylinders. He ran test twice just to. Ake sure as run earlier was good. Most had 175-180, with two down at 75 psi. Risers and manifolds only 4 years old and look good, but with cilinder work, decided lets replace them too so I have a reliable boat this summer.
Also need a new shower sump and mid cabin bilge replaced as the sea cocks stuck too, Macerator bad too.

Survey found no navigation or anchor light worked, no horn, no CO2 detector. No cracks in gelcoat anywhere and all bulkheads sound. Most every major compenent works.
