Default Talk about a bad idea..towing related

My hand was forced to go pick up a boat I bought on the 4th of July.I had to take my 05 Escalade to go get it from Tierra Verde and drag it back to Port Orange.....long day by myself dodging traffic down I4.

Just for the record this is not the way things were planned out...somethings happened yesterday at the marina and I had to scoot over and pick her up the best I could.

BTW, if anyone knows of a 7.4 they don't need I will be in dire need of one.This one was undergoing risers and manifolds and things went bad prior to me.


This shot right here had me re-thinking my infinite wisdom.

Don't worry when the anchor logged itself in the roof you were good to go.

That's exaclty what we where expecting but by the time she got on the trailer the anchor was a good 3' away....and cleated tightly.

The old caddy actually did very well...60-65mph pretty easily and pulled down 9.2mpg.I was surprised for a bit over 10k lbs on the trailer.
