  • SWB: How does it tow heavy stuff?

    I am shortly taking delivery of an an R shortie. I'd be keen to know (others might too!) how it tows, particularly heavy trailers and vans. MIne will tow an 1800kg semi-off road van.

    Cheers

        16.6 foot/4.45m jet boat with HSV LS2 6.0 V8 307kw (346kw in the boat!)

        0-100km/h in approx 3 sec

        It's a family boat





        The trailer is all alloy with hyd brakes and weighs in at just 300kg, the boat is 780kg dry with no gear
