Creative ideas for loading 38''''er on trailer w/out crane?
I think that you misunderstood my point. The cost to haul my boat on a hydraulic trailer was significantly less than a rigid trailer when you factor in the cost of needing a crane to load the boat on a ''low-boy'' trailer. In other words,it cost me the same amount per mile for the hydraulic trailer as I was quoted for rigid trailer and since a crane was not required, I realized significant savings by not having to rent a crane and pay an operator to place the boat on the rigid trailer.
