Well it's been a while that I log in. I even forgot I wrote this. Wanted to update, I got out of the boat hauling business. I sold the f350 with trailer and all. I ended up buying a 1998 kenworth T600 with a 475hp 6TS 3406e cat , rtlo18913 and 3:55 rears. I'been flatbeding for a little over a year now OTR and couldn't be happier. I am making good money and back doing what I love doing. I truck is running awesome and getting great fuel mileage. Needless to say, yes it was a mistake leaving my class 8 trucks for a glorified pick up tuck but it was an experience. I just recently purchased a brand new 2016 flat bed and couldn't be happier. I know it's a little late but thanks for the advise regardless.
