jky: Can you post some pics?

What kind of SIB and motor do you have on your trailer?

I'm in Calgary, and I'd even drive to Vancouver to pick up a trailer like yours if it seems like the best option...

I plan to back the trailer into the water with my truck.

Where did you get your SIB trailer?

I've got a 17 foot aluminum hull RIB. Just trying to give some advice (though to be fair, my last boat was a 14' SIB with a Honda 40.)

Should be a trailer builder closer to you. Google and any local boating forums (fishing, skiing, etc) should be of use.

So what's with the Flames trading Iginla???

The Flames ???


The Jets didn't even make the playoffs , and you're asking about the Flames at a time like this?

If the Jets keep playing like they have been, they're going to have to go back to their old jerseys !

Well, Iginla, who pretty much *was* the Flames, to be specific.

The Sharks start against Vancouver tonight; have to remember the Canucklehead term.

p.s. How's *that* for a thread hijack?

We don't take that rig on dirt roads, but if we did (with lightweight boats) the whole trailer just bounces over the potholes and washboard. So if you drive on dirt roads a lot I'd go for bigger wheels (14") since bouncing like that will be really hard on the transom.

A normal bunk trailer for hard boats is fine for SIBs if the bunks are long enough to give good transom support.

EZ loader makes a good bunkk trailer and not all that heavy. Zodiac GR MK III with boat and motor pulled easily by jeep with stock tires.

With these tires I managed to get over 12-18" rocks with a little finese.

Hey John. Thanks for sharing. How many bunks are there and what parts of the boat are supported? Any pics of how the trailer supports the weight of the boat (and the motor)?

Dealer said no motor support required but I imagine the tubes will take a beating in the long run. Some time this summer I am going to have to make a custom transom saver.




Bunk only supports along the outer edge of the floor boards so if there is a lot of water in the boat it is hanging off the tubes. Usually a bigger problem if I leave the boat out without a cover and it gets a few inches of water in it.
