Thnaks for reply. As such have never used the audi for boat launching- as a bit concerned about grip -before ruining the A6 wanted to listen to all
you people.Thought about a tatty Range Rover( use to have one)- but I am going to try it anyway with an extended drawbar- and do it first in ideal conditions with a mate to see all the pitfulls.The A6 is pretty heavy at 2000 kgs and has 180 HP v6 diesel. Barely legal towing- but it does the job, and the local police very sympathetic to Brits. I was followed from Brussels to Nieupoort for about 50 ks and pulling at 130 , only to be stopped and told that my trailer number plate was faling off!!!!!!!!!
