Snapper, you didn't say what your boat and trailer weigh. According to the owners manual, with a Class A hitch, you can safely tow 1,000 lbs.

thanks for the responses . my boat, motor and trailer weigh less than a thousand pounds. I have never seen a pt pulling a trailer and wanted to make sure it was safe before I spent the money on a hitch.
