XS-Rib towing capability

Was a bit of a strain on the 90 Suzuki , but seemed to tow Sagres out OK

Love seeing these tall ships in the Bay and unusual to get a shot of me for a change.
Wow ! I look bright
cheers Dal

Oooooh I don't know I think you are getting a bit of cavitation there

A Boat is a hole in the water, surrounded by fibreglass, into which you throw money...

I've towed some fairly large stuff (though admittedly, not that large.)

Bigger stuff will still move (as long as the wind cooperates); just takes longer...

Odd aside: the strangest tow I think I've done was during a harbor cleanup in Monterey: Using an Achilles 14/Honda 40, I towed a dishwasher and two lift bags back to the ramp.
