Tow this!!

Came across an Aquapro Raider "sunning itself "today.Impressive boat,but a little over the max beam to tow I think Would get one, but I'm about $160,000 short
So gave it a friendly wave and onto the Tall ships. Only to get nearly boarded by some scurvy looking crew!
Too many people been watching Pirates of the Caribean I think
cheers Dal

Those twin 250s look really feeble - thought they were 90s until I looked closer!!!

Those ships are stunning as usual - what a life, I haven't been out on my boat for 2 weeks now - moving premises and didn't realise how much junk I had collected. About half way through now - and doesn't my back know it!!!

Think the engines are just dwarfed by the width of the thing They are twin Evinrude 250 E-Tec's but see what you mean.
And think you could put an elephant in the rear of this before the tubes touch the water.
Suppose it does give you the stability if manouvering at high speed or ploughing through the waves.
It's name is "Surf Raider" so maybe he likes getting out there to play.
Just looked up the outside beam- 9' 6" wow! sort of restricts moving it around. Wonder what it is with tubes deflated?

Etec's are very compact. I bet if it was a merc offering they'd have looked more in perspective.

Actually it's 10' 2" - thought so cos my boat is 9" 2". Still looks more than a foot wider than mine though - and I have towed mine - no wonder everyone got out of my way!!!
