On the road at last

Lomac Club 730, behind 1989 Chevy Surburban 4x4, 3/4 ton, 5.7. Discovered that with boat in tow the rig would move off the driveway without touching the accelerator peddle, how ever it will only do 85mph flat out so all low end grunt. New safety chains and two speed winch ( I like), redone light board and transom tiedowns.

Hi Codders, have you been on the toot again?
PS. That large Cactus ( saguaro) would sell for about $5K including transplanting.
