I would hate to jump into 9 foot deep water to hook up a tow bar. So its more or less a dissabled vehicle bulldozer. :D

Thanks, interesting critter.

Hi David.

Thank you very much for that . . . but I stand by what I said you have created a one off model all on your own that looks the business and is very impressive well done indeed.
