733 OB Trailer?

Hi,

I'm thinking about a new trailer for my 733 and was curious if any of you had a suggestion? Make, Model? Length? Should the bunks go back and support the outboard bracket? The existing trailer is too small but works for the time being. I have the boat off the trailer and ready to flip so now might be a good time to replace.


Thanks,
Jason

I have a 30ft trailer under mine with bunks and although it is too big for me with the outdrive I like the fact that the bunks extend beyond the furthest rear point if only as an initial point of contact. Mine is a five star brand I bought having never been wet off a guy who owes my transporter for 2500 with ss brake lines and fenders.

Out of curiosity, what do you mean by this?

When recovering, the initial point of contact will be further towards the front of the bunks. Or I'd think you need to get the trailer deeper.

I was thinking more from the aspect of getting rear ended on the 101. Never had a problem putting it in as the bunks are on pivots and while it gets a little nose high its all good. I find drivers notice outboards way more than my I/o when slowing down.

101, eh? Another California guy? Or further north?

Know what you mean (despite having an outboard.) I recently made up an orange prop cover (similar to the UK bags) to get a bit more visibility.

BTW, I doubt the bunks will do much to prevent damage from a car trying to occupy your trailer space.

Ace trailer out of Florida. Talk to terry. Bought one for my 24' inboard; I specified the tongue weight and he designed it to suit. I was impressed. Great aluminum trailer at a great price.

thanks! I'll take a look. What specs did you give them? How much does your boat weight?

Might try Pacific Trailers in Chino, as well.

They aren't cheap unless you can swing a deal (I got a decent price because my frame was already built and it was a canceled order). Also, I haven't enjoyed them for customer service! (I can give more details if someone really wants).

I've bought small pieces from Pacific; never noticed anything out of the ordinary. They were actually pretty helpful when the unit I wanted wasn't available, took time to ask about the application and come up with a substitute.

So, yeah; I'd be interested in hearing about it.
