Depending on the size of the boat, it should be a relatively simple process to reverse the trailer into the water and use the winch to release the boat into the water from the trailer.

weight the boat and trailer on a truck scale, then go back without the boat on the trailer and weight it. Sometimes you can find a base weight for the trailer on a manufacturers website.

How do we remove the hubs on our boat trailer when there are no cotter pins to remove.


It has to have the washer with "tangs" that bend over the flats of the nut. Take a screwdriver and check each flat for one of these "tangs". Good luck.

Do I have to cover my trailer boat when towing?


I do not know the rules of your state but I do not know any that require a cover. The bout should be strapped down to the trailer and anything that can blow out should be removed. I followed a boat the other day that had a hatch unfastened. Round things were blowing out as the lid flopped in the wind. I stopped him, then went back to see what came out. He will be unhappy when he gets on the water and finds he does not have any leader line left.

I just bought a new boat and need to buy a boat trailer. Should I buy a boat trailer with the weight capacity of my new boat, or do I need to make sure it can tow more than that just in case?


Never buy a trailer with the same capacity as the weight of your boat! This can be very dangerous! Instead, make sure the trailer's capacity is at least twice that of the weight of the boat, all your gear, and the boat's motor.

I am in the market for a used boat trailer. I found a good one at a reasonable price, but it has some rust on it. Is it still a good buy?


I wouldn't recommend purchasing a boat trailer that has issues with rust.While you may get a good deal on it now, you will more than likely end up needing to replace it much earlier than you'd like to.
One more thing, check that the hitch on the trailer is tight so that you can haul your boat safely. You don't want to be causing any accidents while driving with your boat in two because your boat has detached from the trailer.

If happens only when the boat trailer you might check to make sure you have a good ground. Might also try removing trailer bulbs one at a time. They can cause strage things to happen if they're bad. (don't have to be blown)

Getting a title for a vehicle


Different states have different laws. In states that charge trailer plates by Weight, you need to pull the Trailer over a scale and show the weight receipt. If the Boat has to stay on the trailer, pull both and subtract the weight of the boat from the total weight. You can find the Boat weight online.

In states that charge a flat fee for Trailer plates, its much simpler. You can also go to a Vehicle Registration center and get a form for the registration. But you need to call ahead to find out if Police or Highway Patrol can verify the Hull# or Trailer ID.

I need to manufacture a boat trailer for a


I have some tips I learned from finding a trailer for my 27 foot cruiser. Really, you can find deals in this economy that make rigging a trailer from scratch too much work.
You need to find the loaded weight of your boat and where the hull needs support from Carver. Your trailer needs to hit the "Chines" correctly, meaning the bunks have to be adjustable to the contours of the hull.
The bunk supports can fit outside, inside, or on top the frame rails Mine started on top of the rails and were converted to the torsion axles, requiring new supports.

The axles need to support enough weight and State laws will say how many axles need brakes. Your choice of electric or hydraulic. The bunks should be made of Cypress, but synthetic decking could be cheaper. Your tires should Load rated D or better and 15 to 16 inch wheels, not 14 inch because of the weight.

There are numerous Boat Salvage yards listed online.
There seems to be a "thing" about the region the boats are used. Some places have orphaned trailers everywhere and others are always married to a trailer.
I have seen Boatyard liquidations with ridiculously cheap trailer prices. Use the internet and look.

Loading back on traiker


Float on style trailers are designed with immersions depths and vertical guides to allow the boat to be driven onto the trailer. But not at full throttle, only enough power to move the boat over the bottom rollers/guides. Some trailers are designed to have the boat winched onto the trailer. For this style, you drive to boat to a starting point and then use the winch to pull the boat the remaining distance. These sometimes have a release mechanism and hinge/pivot point to allow the back of the trailer to drop below the normal towing position to make recovery easier. As the boat is winched into position, the weight of the boat will cause the trailor to pivot and return to the towing position.
