Here are some more photos of my my 205 Eastport. Some are from a recent off shore trip, caught a nice Halibut! Also some pics of the full enclosure set up, this is very nice and warm. So far I am impressed with this boat, the lay out, the handling, and I am even happy with the minimum horse power of 135. This thing is by far the best boat I have ever owned! Password hello.

How does the Tacoma tow the boat?

That is a nice neat boat, thanks for sharing the pics. I am actually looking for one as well, hoping to find one with a 4 stroke on her.

I assume with a tow hitch/ball and trailer like everyone else, no?

The tacoma does surprisingly well. I have firestone ride rite airbags which helps it maintain the stock ride. I can definitely tell I am towing something.....but I would comfortable on a long trip. MPG go to crap of course, about 10-13 I think. The tow capacity for the truck is 6500lbs and the boat I figure all together comes in around 4000lbs so thats a pretty good margin.

Thanks

Don't feel to bad about the MPG. I have a Tundra which tows my Dauntless 180 very well. However at 55-60 I get 11mpg
