You see any problem pulling a '16 aluminum boat with a ford focus. Only about 10 miles...

Not really.
I have towed close to 1000 pounds with a 2007 Prius. There used to be a Yahoo group "Towing with your Prius" Some people have towed 1200 pounds without any issues. Google towing with a Ford Focus see what comes up.

If it's just a conventional automatic, sure. If it's a DCT or CVT, don't.

The Prius is a CVT and never had an issue.

I don't think I'll have any trouble with it.

My 2004 Focus ZX3 had 190k on it when I traded it. No problems pulling the Lowes 1652 in my signature.
