I just purchased an 1985 model Zodiac 3432 SIB with an Evinrude 50 HP motor.
I got the whole lot for good value I reckon (1500 euro) complete with road trailer. http://www.donedeal.ie/for-sale/boats/1262880
I'm a little concerned however that the trailer supplied is not a proper fit.
When loaded on the trailer there is no support directly under the transom. This is not a problem when the engine is not mounted, but I'm worried that transporting on the road with the engine mounted (heavy 50 Hp motor!) the transom may become damage or tear away from the rubber due to no support underneath it?
Is this boat enginerred to take this type of strain? My road journeys will be relitively short (about 15km each way) however I dont want to take any chances.
Should I get the trailer modified?
All feedback appriciated.
