: I guess I should have defined what I consider to be a small boat. 18ft long. Inboard 6cyl 150hp motor. Total weight 3000 lbs. 250lb tongue weight.

Well, I know little about towing trailers, but here is what my owners manual has to say:

Trailer load limits: unbraked 700kg / 1543lb
braked 1500kg / 3307lb

Max. towbar downthrust:
50kg / 110lb
with trailer towing or self levelling suspension options 75kg / 165lb

Note: My car and manual are Australian, which is Euro spec. YMMV.

Paul.
