Shout to the south west

I have got my prom shortly (end of june) and am in need of a mode of transport. I was thinking about towing my boat all the way back from the gower. But decided it would be too much hassle. So what i am asking is could someone drive us to prom towing the boat. It will only be 5 miles or so.

We will obviously be willing to pay a good amount so send me a quote. Call me crazy, but it has never been done before!!! We can provide the towing car (V8 land rover defender!) then you can just come along to supervise or if you would prefer, you use your towing vehicle. There is 7 of us by the way (could add up to a good amount of money!).

I'm fairly sure it's illegal to be in a trailer while it's being towed.

Love to know what people call South West - I know where I think the borders are - the wife's company seem to think it starts at Gloucester!!
