he boat should contain all the necessary equipment and luggage.
The size may from 5 feet to 10 feet depending on the requirement.

40-45 inches. It's a good size for an old guy as things are bigger and easier to work on.

I can haul a couple in my SUV but when you travel to races I need a trailer. It's all the stuff that you need for more than just a day race that adds up. The smaller nitro burners weren't bad for tossing in the back of my pick-up though. Now if I go shopping for a main ride I also consider what is going to hauled inside of it or if it would pull the trailer.

I've seen pix of the Europeans that have to fold down their seats and have the transom hanging out of the rear hatch window to transport their huge boats!
The size of my boats are just my choice. I really wouldn't want to go larger as these are fine for me. I've also got boats down to .12 nitro's in my fleet but rarely get run anymore.

Agreed. I have 58" segad and a 92 Cherokee. it is definitely a tight squeeze. rudder against ft seat and sponson tips against the hatch. Don't think I would trade it though, it's always nice to pull it out and watch peoples jaws drop. For my race boats though I prefer 29" to 34"
