Your right, don't want to worry too much. I've a few jobs to do before I use it, like fit the Hydraulic steering and a quick tidy up.

My Force 4 Flatacraft with 55HP Suzuki used to cost me about 15 for 3-4 hours skiing etc, so I'm prepared for a bit more than that.

Getting back to one of my original points, does anyone know anything about the availability of american size tow hitches, otherwise I'll need to mod the trailer with all its hydraulic brakes etc. Thats unless somebody wants the larger trailer.

If you dont push the loud stick beyond 3/4 throttle it helps a little (I say a little) with consumption. Best thing to do is to take plenty of mates out with you to split the fuel bills!

American balls - errm maybe try ordering one from somewhere in the US. Give google a go?
