Re: longer hitch for launching boat
hey, man, if it works for you, go fo it...
Mine is almost exactly the opposite... one guy already posted the idea, but i LOVE my trailer's extention. the "trailer hitch" is on a 10-ft long 3x4 rectangular tube that slides into the main "beam" of the trailer and is "pinned" with a 3/4" pin. When it is fully extended, it lengthens my trailer by about 10 ft. Of course, you can't tow with it that way, but man it is easy to put the boat in and out of the water. Sometimes my tires don't even get wet!
A creative guy with a torch and a welding rod coould do the same for YOUR trailer...
