Since your boat is fiberglass, you can use either rubber rollers or red soft poly rollers. Aluminum boats can use rubber rollers as well as blue hard poly rollers.

What are the trailer specifications for a 1987 wellcraft 34 ft. Fiberglass boat. I need to know the length and width. Thanks


Off the top of my head I'd say 38-40 ft long, 9ft8in to 10ft wide and tandum wheels rated for 5500lbs total or better for 4 wheels & a class 3 hitch capable of 6000-6500lbs. No more than 300lbs on the tongue.

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.

Towing capacity of a 1.8L Nissan Primera Station Wagon


1500Kg is more likely to be the maximum towing weight.

You should, in theory, be able to launch and recover a boat/trailer of this combined weight ok, but in practise you need to consider how slippery the ramp is and if your front wheel drive vehicle will be able to cope with it.

Use a long strop attached to the trailer and looped around the towing hitch, to launch and recover the boat, so your car stays well away from the water.

You could have some problems getting enough grip with your front wheel drive, when recovering a boat.

I have had to recover my boat from a rocky beach when I couldn't get it back to the launch ramp because of bad weather. I was very thankful that I had a four wheel drive car for that.

What ever you do, ALWAYS plan carefully exactly how you are going to do the launch or recovery and make sure you stop and think about it before doing it.

How do iI chose a fishing boat?


There are three styles of regular fishing boats; deep v, regular v or modified v. The v determines how well the boat cuts through the depth of the water. The deep v is better suited for large lakes because they can handle heavy waves better. Regular "v" is more appropriate for smaller lakes and a man made body of water. As the water is not as deep and the waves are not as heavy, this type of boat is able to handle the situation. The modified v is the most popular version. It is capable of handling speed best. Most fishing boats on the market today are made of fiberglass or aluminum. What is best for your fishing situation? Do you want to fish in large lakes or small lakes? The options are endless. There are several classes of fishing boats for different situations. All purpose fishing boats are great for your basic fishing needs. This type of boat has space for some bench seats, fishing gear and a simple steering station. They are made of either fiberglass or aluminum and are between 15 and 20 feet long. Another type of fishing boat is a bass boat, which comes fully equipped with space for rods and fishing gear. The boat is fully built with electronics and livewells. This boat also is made out of fiberglass and aluminum. The advantage to this type of boat is it is made especially to catch bass, fast. The third type of fishing boat is the center-console. It allows a fisherman to angle from any place on the deck. The control center is located in the center. Depending on the size of the boat they can be used offshore as well as near. Flats boats are mostly made up of fiberglass. The advantage of these boats is they allow easier angling access to saltwater flat fish. Another advantage it has is a poling platform that allows for fish spotting. Finally, a casting deck allows the angler to keep control. This makes this ype of boat convenient for fishing. The final category of fishing boats is the fun boat because it combines the motor of a yacht and the functionality of large a cockpit to work trophy fish and bring them on board. If ou are a fishing fanatic then it is important to have all the things that you need to make your fishing trip a success. Fishing boats are definitely the finishing touch to a nice fishing trip.

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.
