    Is this Bandit trailer too short for a SF?

    Thanks, danpal. Is there an idiot-proof way of scribing out the shape of the hull onto the planks? I looked at the yahoo pics, the concept seems clear enough, but I don't want to mess it up. I know that the worse that could happen is that I get 2 more planks and start again.

    Is this Bandit trailer too short for a SF?

    Cool, thanks Irish (and everyone else). I'm wondering how long those bunks should be...I'm guessing about 6 feet (or the full 8 feet)?

    Is this Bandit trailer too short for a SF?

    Whew!!! Great, thanks! Good to know that the trailer will work if outfitted with good bunks/placement. I followed the link to the yahoo site... the scribing part looks a bit tricky.

    Is this Bandit trailer too short for a SF?

    Hi all, best new year wishes to everybody!!! Please let me know if this trailer will work, or if it's too short....picture attached. I measured 8' from the winch crank to the axle (can be increased slightly by sliding the attachment forward), and 10'6" from forward tip (where it would attach...

    Per the repair, what should I be asking for at the marine store? Thanks

    Is this bow problem fixable for using Kitty Hawk trailer?

    Hi all, I was on the verge of dropping the hammer on a Kitty Hawk trailer purchase when the following made me pause... As the pics show, there's damage to the bow, resulting in a fix using a lot of fill-in in the underlip part of the gunwale. This doesn't leave much gunwale for the bow portion...

    Removing damaged screw on bow handle

    Thanks fellas. Having looked at a vid of left-handed bit that reverse-threads the stripped screw, I'm leaning in that direction (link below). BTW, the bow handle and some of the screws were basically eaten away by those blisterin' barnacles, so they're being replaced.

    Removing damaged screw on bow handle

    Hi all, any tips on removing a philips screw whose head is stripped out? I looked at a few youtube vids, but decided to post here as well as I'm trying to minimize risk to the fiberglass (such as drilling holes in it by accident). Thanks

    Wanted: used Kitty Hawk trailer in NJ/NY/eastern PA

    for 2001 sunfish. I have a left-handed 1988 made in Japan Fender stratocaster guitar for trade, if that's allowed. Or a cash deal. Hit me up.

    Trailex SUT-220-S trailer

    I'm hoping to find one (a KH) by July, by which time the water should warm up a bit. Fingers crossed. Otherwise I may be forced into a heavier choice.

    Hull Repair 2003 Vanguard

    Hiya signal charlie--- how timely! My boat, which is coming home on Sunday, is similar looking, and will need a little work, especially as it may take a while to get a trailer. Plus, the water is still cold here in NJ, so I'm not rushing to the inevitable dunking, noob that I am. I hope to...

    Trailex SUT-220-S trailer

    After reading all the accolades about it, the Kitty Hawk may be my ticket, especially as my SF is a 2001, which the KH will support at the gunwale like WJEJR noted. Also, not much sand where I'll be launching, just gravel. Plus, I think I'll have a much better chance of snagging a used KH than...

    Trailex SUT-220-S trailer

    Hi all, http://www.castlecraft.com/faq_trailex_trailers.htm I'm considering this trailer as an option for transporting my newly-acquired and soon to be delivered SF because: a) it's lightweight and can double as a dolly (and will hopefully keep me from pulling my back out) b) the suspension is...
