WILLOW and SCOUT On The Move

 Jun 2021:

Our little Sorg Runabout WILLOW and Grumman 17 SCOUT hitched a ride on top of and behind the Subaru Outback XT SUPER GUMBY.

SUPER GUMBY pulled great, the turbo gave her a boost up to highway speeds with no problems. The canoe was held secure with Shepak Quick Loops on the bow and stern, ratchet straps amidships, see our article in the July 2021 issue of Small Boats Magazine.

WILLOW road great on her custom trailer from Eddie English. The key to towing a light runabout safely is to secure the boat and motor to the trailer. We supported and secured the outdrive with a "transom saver" bar so that is didn't bounce and stress the transom.

The transom was secured to the trailer with straps.

The transom eyebolts go through a double thickness of the transom
