    I love your lawn. Want to come over and take care of mine?

    What are you doing on that golf course ? Nice looking boat. Enjoy your summer. It's finally here.

    Thanks for the offer, but Minnesota's a bit of a drive from Bass Lake...

    @supersonicus Bass Lake. Have a buddy who has or had a place there. Dave Hoff. A few friends would bring there boats to the marina there at end of season for winterizing and storage.

    @foxriverat Don't remember a Dave Hoff from the lake...

    Thanks for the compliments on the lawn gang. You guys made my Dad's day. He takes lawn care to the next level...

    Did I see that boat on SIA around 12 months ago?
  • supersonicussupersonicus Posts: 135 Baller
    Yes you did. Mine now.

    Let your dad know there is a small dandelion starting to pop up just to the left of the trailer tire.

    My dad's lawn in MN looks the same. That photo should be sent to Scotts Lawn Company as a promo shot for their "Weed and Feed" turf builder products. The contrast between the boat and the lawn is cool.

    Somehow I can see our dad's being able to share loooong lawn stories with each other. Great boat!

    Lawn is so nice I felt guilty and plucked dandelions. Pain in the back!!
    Stir vigorously then leave!

    Gee I love Red, it takes some more looking after but you get rewarded for it. I remember seeing it on SIA at the time thinking how much i wanted that boat.

    @rockdog Thanks for the compliment. I have a thing for early 70's vintage Correct Crafts and this scheme is reminiscent of them. Was lucky to come across this boat as it has very low hours, a 6 liter and the previous owner was beyond meticulous with his stuff. Its near showroom condition...
  • Skoot1123Skoot1123 Posts: 1,987 Mega Baller
    @supersonicus - is that a Macan or a Cayenne pulling that super nice boat? Great Setup either way!
  • supersonicussupersonicus Posts: 135 Baller

    @Skoot1123 Cayenne. Ok for putting boat in the water, but would not want to long haul with it.
  • swc5150swc5150 Posts: 2,433 ★★★Triple Panda Award Recipient ★★★
    @supersonicus Is it a V6 Cayenne? I was thinking it would tow a 196 quite well with either V6 or V8? My wife wants one, and we have a 196, which is why I ask. Funny the turns this thread has taken!

    @swc5150 Yea, this is all about lawn care and cars. It has the 8. I think either one has enough power, I'm just not big on towing any sort of load over distance with a unibody chassis.
  • Lieutenant DanLieutenant Dan Posts: 215 Baller
    @swc5150 My brother has a Cayenne S that he uses to haul around his 21 ft Mastercraft Wakeboard boat. I think you'd have no trouble with a 196
  • BulldogBulldog Posts: 1,033 Crazy Baller
    I have friends that pull 3500 lb travel trailers with the Cayenne with no issues what so ever. That ride should pull a 196 with no worries at all...

    @Jack Kinne Agreed, the diesel is a beast. Test drove an X5 diesel tonight, and it was nice too. Can't beat the Cayenne for fun factor though.

    Amen Cayman2!

    @supersonicus did you buy that boat from some one in Michigan? I noticed the Silver Spray Sports sticker on the trailer. They are in Fenton Michigan.
  • supersonicussupersonicus Posts: 135 Baller
    @Wayne Sure did. Got it from Dave Amy in Linden. He and his son originally bought the boat from Silver Spray.
  • Texas6Texas6 Posts: 2,197
    Couldn't help but notice the attention somebody has given the platform. Looks good. The Cayenne is heavier than it looks also, which makes for a decent tow rig.

    My dad has a Cayenne with the V8 - and that thing is a total beast. Not to mention how comfortable that thing is. I'd have no qualms pulling a boat behind it. I use our 2011 Explorer (which has a V6) to tow our Moomba Mobius - and that has a tower. Sure - it slows it down a little but it works just fine. (Explorer is a uni-body as of 2011)
  • 6balls6balls Posts: 5,477 Mega Baller
    I tow with a MB ML AMG. Can't remember the tow rating but it's plenty respectable It's hard to tell anything is back there...tows great I bet the Cayenne does as well.
