LYC...the home of champions.

The Chiefs Regatta almost killed me every year because it was the first of the year and there were lots of sit ups what with the gusty winds. And I loved it!

Great turn out for a gusty event! Looks like the Interlake fleet was rearing to go. 19 boats on the starting line!!!

Great photos Debbie Parker! ... See MoreSee Less

Normally, 38 degree temps with a 15+ knot breeze would call for postponing your spring lift placement party...but not this fleet! These interlakers are committed! (And probably should be 😂). ... See MoreSee Less

It works with flags too

Aha!

I'm new to both Interlakes and towing a trailer. Will something small like a Toyota Rav4 safely tow for short distances? What vehicles do you guys use? ... See MoreSee Less

Sure! Shouldn’t be a problem. A 600 lb boat, a 500 lb trailer with a tongue weight next to nothing. You’ll hardly know the thing is back there!

Easily. The boat only weighs 600 pounds and a small trailer weighs 200 to 250 pounds. Well under 1000 tow weight.

You could probably use your bicycle if you were so inclined.

As an automotive engineer, I'm going to be a little more conservative: 1. Read your owner's manual. It will state the maximum trailer towing limit, which is usually 1,000 lbs for 4-cyl Japanese vehicles. 2. The minimum weight for an Interlake, including spars and rudder, but without sails is 650 lbs. A usual trailer is about 400 lbs., so you're over the 1,000 lb. limit, but... 3. The trailer limit assumes some pretty sever temperatures and grades. If you stay in the Midwest, you should be OK. 4. A factory-installed towing package usually includes additional transmission cooling, which would be a good thing. 5. Getting the rig up to speed and proceeding on the highway is one thing, stopping is quite another, particularly if you stopping the SECOND time in quick succession from highway speeds. Take it from someone who knows: always pack more underwear than you think you'll need.

No problems here 👍

Um, that you know of.

My dad and I used to roll ours in the water by hand from the Mohican Sailing Club side holding yard. I was 8. So will say it was really just my dad! Lol. The Rav has it covered. Just get the trailer checked for wiring and safety. You’ll be fine. 😊

RAV4 is fine

I’d tend to think that if you don’t drive up hills, or brake when going downhill, you can exceed the manufacturer’s recommendations. I friend from Mansfield used to tow an Interlake and trailer with a Mustang, which had virtually no suggested towing capability.

Welcome aboard!

Important rules for trailering a boat: 1. Regresse the wheel bearings annually. 2. Don’t put the trailer axle hubs in the water right after driving a lot. Tends to suck water into the bearings as they cool off.

Daniel Miller we can make sure you get there. I have a bunch of work to do on the one I acquired. Hopefully I can get it to close to race ready this year.

I pulled mine with a 2014 Subaru Forester with a CVT. Max tow limit was 1200lbs without trailer brakes. Didn’t even feel it. I have a 2020 bought after the season. Will see how it does but not expecting anything different. I would imagine you could say our cars are equivalent.
