I am now the concieted owner of a 4.5 mtr avon adventurer,powered by 40hp 4stroke Honda. Problem is it was bought on a whim and not much thought was given to a vehicle to tow it. Sadly my 22year old nissan micra is not really up to the job. I did borow a suzuki jeep for a couple of days but was not impressed,. too heavy,juicy and my wife has difficulty driving it
Like most I guess what I buy must serve a dual purpose, my pleasure and the chores of life. I am not sure of the total weight and dont plan on taking it veryfar, 10 miles? to the slipway.Complete with unbraked trailer it cant weigh more than 500kilos, Ithink.
I am considering a 1600 estate or similar but would really apreciate the experiance of others who have similar. I dont want too much power or anything flash , just enough to get me in the water..
