Yes we will be related in some way - all go back to a single family in Devon a million years ago. Don't know him though - my bro is called Chris but he lives in Oz so I doubt he would have been passing through Swansea

Aussie big six. Makes light work of towing and manages the ramps, but I'd love something that will manage a sandy ramp. It's winter, so the ramp is empty, but I'm dreading summer and the crowds.

Pictures from this afternoon just before I left Tounge in Sutherland. Both the car and boat were packed to the brim with camping / boating gear. Could do with a 4x4; maybe next year.

Big Rig

Start of a 400 mile journey, delivery only, won't be doing this every weekend, especially at 11 mpg.

Get yourself a Discovery tdi - mine returned about 26mpg towing a boat of a similar size on a triple axle trailer.

Have you towed that boat from John's place in St Davids? How the hell he gets them along those country lanes is beyond me!!!
