Any thoughts on doing this in an Xtrail? Its got a lift and A/Ts. Only thing that concerns me is the water crossing as there is no snorkel available for Xtrails.

if you do it at low tide water is normally only knee deep or just over. i have no snorkel and have no problems at low tide (and mine is also a petrol) also just noticed you are from sydney. this pebbly beach is in northern NSW between Coffs Harbour and Grafton.

Yea great. I can comfortably cross anything up to around 500mm deep and anything up to 800mm that is flowing slow enough.
Yeah I know exactly where it is. Looking for a quiet week of fishing and beers and not much else.

yeah it is a beautiful spot. it has pit toilets but everything else you'll need to take with you. like drinking water and fire wood. well worth it though

Yeah looks perfect I reckon. How'd you go with the salt on the crossing? Is it mostly fresh at low tide?

spray everything you can see underneath with lanolin and give it a good hose off and inside the chassis rails when you get home or the nearest car wash with a high pressure hose.

First thing I did was look up youtube videos. What concerns me is that because my engine is lower mounted it will be more than just the chassis getting in the salt. We are talking everything from AC compressor to alternator would be going under if it's any deeper than 0.5m.

it is mainly hub height really but generally with a good bow wave your engine bay doesn't even get wet.

Maybe tarping up could keep out more. Most videos I've seen are a fair bit deeper than hub. You reckon those are just people doing it outside the low tide? I'll be up in Coffs in October for a weekend so might have a look and make a decision then.

that last link i posted was us doing it about 2 or 3 hours after low tide
and most make it look deeper than it is by going quicker and getting a bigger bow wave

this one was on sunday almost at dead low only a little over the hub height of our 31's (the 2 pajero's) and the bow wave makes it look higher
