SIB on a small (non boat specific) trailer

Here we go again...

For those who are trailering a SIB are any using a really small compact box type trailer with a simple carpeted ply V shape? One that is still capable of taking the engine on the transom too?

Obviously with a solid floor SIB/larger engine a trailer is needed but the boat can still be manhandled off the back rather than needing to be 'launched' as such (ie trailer half in the water) as with a RIB.

Also did someone on here have a detachable transom wheel arrangement where the wheels were not bolted onto brackets but 'clipped' over the transom?

here you go just took some, thinking of changing bunks to HDPE so it slips off better not that its too bad i just make sure the stern floats then just lift and push off.

cheers

Cheers Jeff, so is the engine just against the extended keel bunk or on it? Got a wider side pic of the whole thing?

Reason I'm asking all this is I had a SIB on a trailer before and the trailer (even though a small one) was a right lump.

I'd like to be able to store the SIB upright on it's side in the garage as I do with the Aerotec but then want a really compact trailer to 'lose' somewhere too.

the keel rests on the extended bunk the strap pulls down under the keel bunk and rides well at that the winch strap only holds the bow with two docking arms for lining up for recovery.
just for info the boats out of line a bit at the moment because iv'e been changing things so the side bunk doesn't touch the floor only the tube.
my boats too heavy to do what you want so is the trailer at 200 kg but i have stored it on its side but its still 600 mm wide there are some trailers that pull apart to store which might fit your needs.
i have a duuo trailer for garden rubbish etc basically the top comes off leaving a flat base with wheels and draw bar you could extend the draw bar on them and fit lightweight bunks that come off you would have something that would stand up the in a corner google the duuo and you will see what i mean they are very good if tight on space.

cheers

here you go max same as mine if your transporting the aerotec you could make a plywood top it can sit in, then extend the draw bar to suit length, the draw bar is bolt on and is 50 mm box height from floor to the flat top 500 mm perfect for the aerotec as you would just lift the draw bar and slide her off. if you need any measurements let me know its in my garden. they have lights fitted too but might not be any good for launching but that could be sorted also the metal top would support the engine and transom.

cheers

This would be for something heavier - probably 100 - 120kg boat all in with fuel + engine 50kg.

Ideally transport to slip by trailer then launch with transom wheels.
