Ive read websites about towing restrictions and to be honest Im still confused !

So, basically as long as it total width is less than 2.9m Im OK for width.

I will read the bits about weight and lengh next.

Nick, I do intend to use it for diving, but will get a proper ladder and bimin fitted next then a rack for the tanks. But its only me and my wife diving, so it should be fine. Its all relaxed Mediteranean style diving, nothing hairy like UK diving. There is enough space in the console to store two twinsets while at the marina.

Cheers, Im still pretty clueless and overwhelmed. I reckon the next few weeks will just be spent pootling round the marina at tickover and reading every thread on here

Ive been trying to speak to Neil Holmes about some more training, but every time I call it goes to answer machine.

nice one although the advice on a front tow hitch is a good idea
