Sweet rig!! What size boat 36,43, or 50??? Hard to judge with the big rig in front of it. Looks like a 43 or 50 to me though.

Remember in the good old days when the unlimiteds had piston power? They used to pull the Merlins or Allisons out for towing. In this case, I think the #6's with hydraulic steering would be more solid than the motors.

You got to have dry sumps or turbines to tow like that. I remember the first time I saw a hydro on a trailer like that. I was like 6 and I thought they just did it for display

all the tilts i have seen in person are dry sumped and all the vents must run to the high side of the boat for obvious reasons...
