I have a 22 foot, 1978 Cruiser. Boat and trailer weigh about 5800 pounds. Would this 1500 pound trailer jack be sufficient for that setup? Mine sorely needs to be replaced.

If your boat is set up correctly on the trailer, then the tongue weight should be between 6% and 10% of the total weight - that is 348 lbs. to 580 lbs.

Thanks! I'll have to get down to the local scale and be sure of the weight.

Smart thing to do.
