Setting up Trailer

Setting it up

The 17 foot trailer came from a marine graveyard. It is in a very good condition and only needs some minor work.


Supporting the hull are 2 very wide rollers right under the keel. Additionally newly covered bunks protect the wooden hull.


Due to the wide wheelbase the entire boat sits very solid even when rigged.
