Default Trailer and boat weight

I want to trailer an 18 ft Hydrasport with a 115 Mercury o/b on a Karavan trailer about a mile or so. I just got a new beater pickup Dodge Dakota 6 cylinder and the gross vehicle trailer weight is 2000 lb and 200 lb at the tongue limits. Also the launch can get pretty slippery on low tides - not too steep though. :?: Think it will do the job?

thanks and tight lines,

My 1987 Nissan 4 cly PU, does just about that with my boat(same length),same engine,lots of extra crap and 40 gallons of fuel,water logged floor and all,but. I only do it twice a year,spring and fall....just be extra carefull if you have any doubt,what can be done and what can be done safely sometimes are two different things ,know you limitations.....

be safe
