I like turtles because they're so chill. They don't hurt anyone. They're just like, "Hey man, I want to swim, and maybe eat some lettuce. But I'm gonna take my time getting there, I'm not in a rush. Because I'm a turtle."

The tower is the orginal titan tower from the 2000-2001 wakesetters. Would be easy to make. Let us know and ill send you some pic's of it and maybe you could get it made up custom?

Hey Davros,
The diesel tows nicely, averages around 12-13/100 on the highway. We leave it in 5th usually, leaves it in the guts of the torque curve. Got to give it a good bit of juice back out of the water on recovery, clutch takes a bit of a hit (that could also be me still getting used to it). But am very happy with it.
Hills usually necessitate a drop back to 4th, and even on the hills between Canberra and Syd or Gippsland, getting it into 4th never lost any speed on a straight hill climb
Don't do anything I wouldn't do

Cruiser goes like a dream. We had the 4.2 6cyl naturally aspirated before this one, ave 15.5L/100km not towing now the new one ave 12L/100km while towing 2/3 times per week. Our ramp is really steep and at low tide we're off the end of it. Pulls it out at idle!!! We had a 25t truck bogged down to the diff in sand a little while ago and we just locked the front and rear diffs and she pulled it straight out!!! I can't say enough about this thing, the fuel economy is a bonus.

Don't sweat it Thommo, you're set-up is pretty sweet. We cant all have a VLX or 210, as long as we have a good time boarding behind what we've got, isn't that what its all about?

Id go with an SS, holden V6s are not real good for towing









or get a Falcon ute, better rear suspension for towing/load carrying and the straight 6 has no problems towing :)

it's like an enclosed hammock for your boat, the boat still sits at water leve, but is enclosed by a heavy vinyl and all the water is pumped out from where the boat sits.
