Errr, not sure about that one mate! My 4.2m Tohatsu wood deck SIB with 20 hp engine has never been anywhere near a trailer. It fits comfortably in the back of our Vauxhall Astra with fuel, kit, a large cool box, and there would be room for a weekend's worth of camping gear as well. I just don't see the point of trailering a SIB. Why not get a RIB then? The only time my SIB didn't come home in the back of the Astra was when we put it on top of my dad's car- attached.

I have a honwave 3.8m, a 25 hp two stroke, fold away launching trolley, fold away engine trolley, 25l fuel tank, 3 life jackets, rod, fishing box, 2 seats, oars, bravo pump, waders etc. it all fits in the back of my audi a3.
It takes around 7 minutes to load up, I can have the boat blown up and in the water within 15 minutes and the best bit is I can launch anywhere and drive at 70+ ...
It can be a bit of a pain but if you think positively then it is just a bit of free exercise, saying that I would like something that could go faster, but hey-ho, you can't have it all

Without the launching trolley it would be a no go though, very important piece of kit...

P.S. the honwave is around 45 kg, engine 51 kg, both quite heavy. My previous sib had a metal floor, that was around 30 kg plus another 30 kg for the floor, it was a major pain to build and dismantle at times, on a few occasions I was still there 45 minutes later trying to put together or dismantle. I had a 15 hp which weighed around 34 KG
Previous to that I had a small 2.7m 20 odd KG and 4 hp Yam 19 ish KG, very easy to fit in the car and get out in the water, just not much fun...

How do you get a 45kg boat and 51kg engine up and down a shingle beach (trolley or no trolley) singlehanded?! And all the gear up and down too, all that out of the boot down the beach, blown up, floor in, engine on in 15 mins!

Impressive stuff!
