 Nice set up Russ.

I actually met the guy that bought the mould for those Dominator series hulls and built himself an absolute weapon of a boat. 

Enjoy!

The old dominator is a great boat. Been out in all sorts of conditions and it's a dry boat which is what we were after.

Good Luck Russ,

 That's brilliant Russ! Never

 That's brilliant Russ! Never seen one before but certainly solves the problem of towing a boat and having a caravan. Obviously there are motorhomes but they cost a lot and you still have to drive that around. This is perfect.

Had people ask why we didn't

Had people ask why we didn't buy a caravan which has more room. Simple answer is . How can you tow a boat and a caravan.

Most of the time will be sitting outside so why do you need more room inside.

The whole set up loaded comes in at 5600kg
