Just got a couple of pics of my OBS pulling one of my dragonboats. You should see the looks I get on the highway with this thing!!!

Here's the first one.....

That is so AWESOME!!!!!!

I used to tow a 16ft ski boat behind a '78 BRAT, only the inside rear view mirror could be used and that was through the boat's windshield.

what is a dragonboat

Dragonboating is a paddling sport.

20 people paddle in the boat (10 on each side). You also have a steersperson in the back, and a drummer up front.

I've attached a pic of a crew paddling during a race....

Towing the boat was a little nerve-racking at first....but I eventually got used to it. The thing is a b*tch to corner in on downtown city streets!

You need to rig up some rear wheel steering, much like the ladder firetrucks. Somebody sits in the dragonboat attached to a wheel that will turn the rear wheel!
