Largest SIB on an Extreme EXT350 Inflatable trailer??

Hi I am considering getting an Extreme ETX350 inflatable trailer for my Excel Vanguard 395 which is 390cm to keep it setup if I am going to use it for a weekend or a week instead of a 1 dayer. It states a max size of 3.8m but seeing photos of the trailer having a Honwave T38 on there it looks like the winch post part can go quite a bit more forward to accommodate the extra 10 cm??

My question is what is the largest SIB that you guys have used on the EXT350 or if you have one do you think I will be ok?

Pictures borrowed from other forum show Honwave T38 on trailer.





Thanks

i've just done the same on my trailer gone from 365 to 435 by moving winch post 300mm all you need is the transom supported even if the tube cones stick passed the bunks

i have a bespoke one from tyrone snell trailers in cornwall i had it built very low so i can float the boat in shallow water matt.
if you get a measurement from the bow of the boat out side to the transom on the boat you can measure up the trailer. you can increase that trailer measurement by having a transom saver extending backwards & moving your winch post forward

dont forget matt the honwave has subbie cones and the excel has pointed ones so you will be 100mm ish longer on the overall length on the excel but have the same bow to transom length as the honwave if that makes sense

Hi just as a quick update I decided to go for a bit more room on the trailer and play it safe. I got a really good quote from Ash Marine in Exeter for the EXT500 inflatable trailer so I placed an order and hopefully it will be ready to collect this weekend. I will take some photos and let you know how it goes when it arrives.

Thanks

Matt
