That seems heavy, any idea what the boat alone weighs (ie, no trailer)

Poor little shog!

nope only going on the theory that the pachanga was 3 to 3 an a half ton plus light trailer , this is a ft wider , 5 ft longer and the trailer looks like it wieghs 3 times more.......... don't laugh but i ran out of fuel at langestone, had to go back by road to get the trailer , pulled it out at the ferry boat and towed it across the island back to the marina at 12 at night, i had several people approach flashing there lights at me ,cos the boat was makin the arse of the car sit down , as the front of there car pasted mine they then came across the boat pertruding ever so slightly beond the side of car , then they all seem to head for the bushes at the side of the road

Bloody hell Simon,

My SWB Pajero struggles to tow my boat.

Mainly cos the arse end of the boat is hanging off the trailer and the rear wheels of the Paj are off the ground.

I must attend to that problem in due course.

I can't believe you told me that!

Does your fuel gauge not work? or were you putting off the inevitable moment......The severe wallet kicking
