Got my transport cradle back From the galvanizers the other day and fitted it out with the landing pads, rollers etc....

My little SR is finally mobile at last :-)

Yeah performs OK, its got a 6 cyl Cummins engine 180hp. Not bad for a small truck. Handles like most rigid HGV's, tail happy in the wet when unloaded but pretty stable at 56mph.

When I was a kid I used to ride my bike to the boat ramp and watch the boats being launched.

After seeing all the rusty trailers and the problems people had launching, I always dreamed of having a truck with a crane and a boat on a cradle.....and here it is. Excellent job!

I've had in my mind something similar. I'm looking at a RO RO system that way I can put different backs on the lorry. I've seen them in Europe but nothing that small over here

That's a fake! The car and the 1st recovery truck going in are real, the rest is just photoshop.
