I'm going round in circles at the moment regarding a trailer, I've had a few ideas but it's going to cost over 1000 to get one built for it

Here are some pics of trailers for FC470 and FC 420s.

Some are from Triad Marine in Kemah, Texas.

Some were sent to me by DefenderMarine Outfitters.

Hope this helps.

I picked up a used 22' trailer this weekend that will fit perfectly. It needs a little work and I need build bunks and set them up to support the main tubes and transom similar to the pictures from Triad Marine.

Here's mine. Started with a galvanized roller trailer. Sold the rollers, swapped the 14" wheels for 12s, made some fenders and made some bunks, a transom support, and a bow support.
Inner bunks also support the transom exactly where it meets the tubes.

All thanks to Rob at Blackdog Marine (Turbodiesel on here). Also got 2 x brand new Zodiac fuel bladders and I also picked up a special forces dry bag rucksack thing which is built like a dry suit I've been collecting these for quite some time in anticipation of the right FC470 You have PM re your trailer
Heck yeah man, you're doing it right for sure! Post some pics. Also, I'd love to see your pelican battery setup. I've been planning on doing the same thing for my FC470 with my 55hp Johnson Enforcer.

I took a pic in the Fall, after putting the boat away for the winter.
Maybe this will be helpful to you. Cheers!
