Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
I've driven a truck that big a couple of times. Really pretty easy. My dump truck is a single axel job. Really not much harder than a crew cab dually pickumup! Probably a LOT harder than a subaru! A subie is looking at the hub caps of these larger rigs!
My then youngest who was about 3 when I bought my navistar, was listening to the older three who had all had rides in the new BIG truck and were arguing who was going to ride from our house to the yard I kept things in. While the older three were arguing, I see her run into the house, grab the 2nd car seat, start pulling it out of the house, tripping over it while yelling "me wanna a ride, me wanna ride!" guess who got to ride in the truck that time. A fellow in a cement mixer was next to us, looked down at Kara sitting in her car seat smiling had a BIG grin on his face watching her.
7 forward gears are not much harder to row thru than 5!
She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
