Discovery or defender with traction control and low ratio you would pull anything up the slip (including a jeep)

It's only a wild stab in the dark - but I'm guessing that thing weighs more than double 600 kg!

If those Freelander things have low ratio I would of thought it would cope.

Just got my second Nissan Navara 4 door pickup - fantasic cars - climate control electric everything and 130hp 2.5 litre turbo deisel - pull down the proverbial house before breaking into a sweat!

I had a freelander, but i had the 2 litre diesel. It was fantasic on the slipway, pulled up my old rib like it wasn't there and recovered my friends Megregor(im not too hot on spellings(not on sailboats anyway))26 with its water ballast full up the reasonably steep slip in Padstow. Being the diesel is had nearly double the torque of andre's petrol.

There was a funny story behind that sailboat by the way. You see we towed it out with the mast still up and there were a few overhead cables.......

The harbour master was left with no telephone, power, radio, radar. He wasn't pleased...

however....

It all resulted in a christmas card from the Padstow harbour master and he got a new harbour masters office over the winter complete with a full set of underground cables.

Thanks Guys for your input so far.
What I forgot to mention is that the weight of my Seahawk with full fuel is 1050kg + weight of trailer which I estimate at 200/250kg

I somehow do not think the Freelander Td4 will cope any better

I think that the TD4 would be a hell of a lot better, ill try and find the stats for each engine.

1.8 litre petrol - 118bhp - 158Nm of torque

TD4 - 130bhp? - 260Nm of torque

The new 2.5 litre V6 only gives 240Nm of torque

A disco would be far better but im sure the freelander woudl be more then capable

Can you get a Landy two-pedal job yet Chris, or do you still have to change gear yourself?

(Like the tents!!)
