How about a 1974 Triumph TR6 and a 1974 International Tempest? Not near as nice but classics nonetheless.

No, I don't tow the Tempest with the Triumph.

always liked the TR6 would still like to have one.  Closest I got was a Spitfire then squeezed a GT6 motor in it.  Still did well with the hotties that wanted to take a ride. Oh nice boat also.

Exactly what I was thinking!  I wouldn't back them into a lake, let alone the salty stuff!

Maybe they have tilt trailers....and they just drop them off into their own Olympic size pools?....

Sad thing is that the 356 will get ruined as a tow car. No frame to speak of and the sheet metal will get stressed.

I enjoy pulling up to a ramp towing my Tempest with the wife's Magnum. As my turn at the ramp came up you could hear all the truck doors opening as the redneck got out to watch me launch. I would swing around and start backing down the ramp until the tire on the trailer just touched the water. Then I would get out, chock the wheels and detach the hitch from the ball and pull forward a foot or two.

 

Then I would deploy my 25' tow strap, hook it to the trailer tongue and to the ball and pull forward to tension. Get out, pull the chocks and back the boat into the water. Rinse repeat for the tow out.

 

Funny to watch them all walk back to their trucks shaking their heads.

You should of seen the looks The Nurse & I used to get down in Baja when we had the old WinnieBago. Used to pull a 15' center console with us. Found a whole lotta shitty roads that led to a lotta secluded beaches down there. We'd have to air down our tires to get to most of them---places that most motor homes couldn't or wouldn't bother with. Shocked a lot of the 4x guys. But we'd pick our own little spot and set up camp---then un-hitch the boat, spin the truck around an reattach it to the ball on the front bumper. Then slowly slide the trailer into the water. You'd be amazed at far we could get that trailer down hill, and with the traction a pair of duallies can give you on semi-soft sand. Good times......

Ed found that a couple of years ago, thread here: http://forums.sailin...howtopic=127427

 

The actual owner of that Ridgeline and Mac26x then backtracked the photo a year later and posted in that same thread. He seemed like a nice fella, said that the trucklet was reliable and that he and his family had a lot of fun with the boat.
