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.
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...
Hi all, I was on the verge of dropping the hammer on a Kitty Hawk trailer purchase when the following made me pause...

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...
I'm considering this trailer as an option for transporting my newly-acquired and soon to be delivered SF because:

b) the suspension is...
