Here is mine 1999 /1500. I just ordered some of those pens with your company name that you give away I couldn't resist the burgandy and gold ones. This MC should be a classic they dont seem to offer this colour any more.

Can you provide some realistic feedback on the discovery's tow performance? How does it do with hills? Braking capabilities? Anything you think is overstressed (ie tranny or brakes) by the weight of your boat.
jake...i borrowed a friends dads disco(2000) to tow my boat to the dealers..it would not be my choice of tow vehicle..its neither the rugged off-roader that a defender is and its not a luxury car such as the range rover...its too in between....however i have tested the new discovery and IT is fantastic ,but over here it is 50,000 specced up,,,which puts it into competition with my toyota amazon which i much prefer...

however it was better than towing it by hand

Sizzler,

I love that Prado/ International Land Cruiser. I wish they sold it here like that. They badge it as a Lexus GX 470 and accordingly charge $15,000 more for it than a 4Runner (same platform).

That is a Shorelander trailer galvinized. But it is not mine at the time of the picture I did not own a trailer so that is borrowed from a ski pal with a 1998/205 MC. I now have a trailer that was made by fellow he calls him self Craddle Ride. I had mine made with 4 bulks.
