I have commented on folk not using kill cords, not wearing life jackets and ,seeing this picture, I remember (to my shame) hanging a 55hp Yam on the back of one of these to see how fast we could make it go. (as above re. kill cord/life jackets)..............it didn't end well !!!!!

Looks like a laugh on a lake. I really can't see how anyone could spend 6500 on it though-I mean, it wouldn't cost that new now with a new 25hp on it?

The diameter of the alloys on the trailer are about twice the draught of the boat. Given the proximity of the seats you'd have to know the passenger very well.
