new tow rig

Towed SIBs and RIBs with a 1992(!) 2wd 3.0L V6 Ford Ranger (whimpy!) for the last 10 years. It finally expired though, but only after I installed new front tires and brakes all around

Throwing caution to the wind, "Water Dog" got a proper new 4wd tow rig. Big enough to actually carry all the scuba tank weight (40lbs each x 20 = 800lbs in tanks alone) and tow the 16ft RIB.

Nice looking truck!

You could ditch the trailer and stick the boat in the back of the truck
