I will as soon as the car is repaired. At the moment, I can not drive it except at very low speeds.
Thank you for the reply! Actually there is no need to drive the vehicle in order to see what is rated Wh/mile. As an example, below is the snap shot of energy app from my car. The solid line at 300Wh/mile (noted with word "rated" on the right side of the screen) signifies that "rated" energy consumption for my car is 300 Wh/mile.

Look at that, no drama whatsoever.

How much does the boat weigh? It doesn't look too heavy.

She is a 23' twin engine boat. Loaded with gear and fuel she is about 4,850 lbs.

I couldn't even feel her behind the X. Felt better than towing her with my Navigator.

I was surprised and quite impressed!

That's awesome. I know that many folks will be curious to see how the Wh/mi changes when you're towing that at highway speeds. Once you're back up and running you've got a good excuse to go boating!

I am told that it is around 450 +/-

That sounds rather high for a boat of that size, and looking at the way it's sitting on the trailer I'd expect it to be much less than that. I have a 23 footer and can easily lift the tongue up, though admittedly mine should have more tongue weight than it does.

Beautiful X by the way, the color is great.
