    Let‘s pull the boat with a new electric truck

    Well, if you are OK with the fully charged batteries having the equivalent total energy of ~ 4 gal of gasoline and therefore a towing range of 150miles or less.

    All I can say is “Make sure you pull the small boat.” and this really is not ready for prime time yet. Who would be stupid enough to buy one?

    Don't worry guys Biden says "everything will be fine". You can take your family to see the county line, it will be great.

    I was being generous, in the article there was an indication that if the item being towed was small and light enough that the truck could do a little better than 115miles on a full charge.

    I think we all want better towing mileage, but for sure I need >400mile towing range like I currently get from my truck.

    90% of my boating is done over 60 miles away from home. i wonder if the boat ramp will install charging stations for the trucks AND the boats. lol

    90% of mine is done on the Savannah River. The landing is 2 miles from my home. Trailering mileage is the least of my concerns.
