I wanted something quite capable, but light to tow and handle. So I settled on a Seacat 520. Fitted here with all the bells and whistles.

Was just too heavy and my crew situation changed.
I wanted something lighter that I could easily tow with my Hulux to Sodwana or Moz etc without hassle. WitchCraft was a ***** in soft sand even with my Land Cruiser.

Yip, that is why I have remained with smallish boats thus far... fair enough I am only 6 months a year on land... the rest at sea (albeit not fishing).... Moz, you are invited to my pozzie, will chat about that much later... and it's free...

why, did you sell the landy?
did the dog die? which came with the landy?


heard the dog is there to keep you company when you are stranded next to the road...….lol


that big window at the back assists you when pushing the landy…… so you can see the road much clearer in front of you!!!


did yours also have a oil leak, visible from the moon without binoculars?
