    Tongue Weight?

    Does anyone know how much the tongue weight is on a Nitro 898? Thanks.

    Thanks Jim. I was actually considering hauling my boat to Inks Lake with a Ford Explorer. I rigged up my bathroom scale and it weighed just over 400lbs. Too much for the Explorer, so I borrowed my Dad's truck.

    200lbs is a commonly recommended weight for small rigs like ours. Your boat may be too far forward on the trailer

    Put a set of descent bathroom scales under the tongue, or the jack on flat ground at the same tongue height that you are towing my guess is it will not go over 200 lbs. Let us know what you come up with?

    The bathroom scales went up to 400lbs then it errored out, so I'm guessing 425lbs.
