That looks like my old tractor...is there two holes in the break peddel on the left? Damn, that is how we did it too with the same tractor. Our tires were filled and G'pa put a hitch ball on the front to make it easier to back. Too funny!

Definitely not your old tractor. I get all the families old equipment, broken and I fix it. My grandfather bought that tractor new in '65. Been through Grandpa, my dad, my uncle and now me. Still amazes me what that little tractor can pull around.

Beautiful S&S! You have 4 boat guides on the trailer? Never saw that before, does it work well for loading?

Under those 4 guides are the posts for my single jet ski rack I "never" use. So, I have the rack stored and put guide poles to not scratch the boat. It does work well for loading when I need to get the trailer deep on a ramp. i do not run the risk of hitting my trailer fender with the bottom of the boat.

As far the the jet ski rack I did not design it. The previous owner I purchased the boat from years ago welded that up to go to Lake Havasu.

You can load and unload the jet ski with the boat on the trailer. Once off. it take two guys to lift the rack up and pin it up on the guides and then back the trailer deeper in the water to unload the boat.

Used it once like this. Only is a good option for a long trip for a far away lake.

5 Speed?!? That's a rare one, too! We almost got an X5 with the 4.4 but with less than 24 hours of ownership, the headlights went on and off on their own, engine almost stalled and rear heat seats came one and off on their own. All with 30,000 miles. Had flashbacks of being in the shop for electrical gremlins......so we returned it and got the Lexus 400h. Not nearly as exciting as the X5.

Nice setup and color combo.
