Here is my latest toy to tow the Pacific. I built this in 93 for a customer. It had a new 3.5 Mazda SLTI diesel and 4 speed ZF auto trans and Viscous couple transfer box. Air lockers front and rear, Old Man Emu suspension kit with double damper mounts if needed. 33x12.50x15 BFG MT tyres, ARB Delux winchbumper and Warn XD9000 winch, and loads of other mods. At the time it was state of the art. It makes approx 175 BHP and 300 lb ft torque. It is reasonably nippy, will do around 95 MPH and will pull the back legs off a donkey, whilst returning 25 MPG. It has only covered 3000 Miles since I built it! It is even the correct colour.

New tow vehicle. Still have to drive the boat off the trailer at that depth, downside of an offroad boat trailer!

Nah, just makes it a tad more elegant to get on and off the boat.
