She can stay in the barn till I get everything else lined out like a cradle. I don't think she will be as top heavy as many but I won't take any chances. I am waiting on bids but with what they seem to be, I could own my own rig to move anytime I please. I call that freedom. If you had paid a hauler 5 times to the Keys, that would buy a decent boat. Thanks for your input.
Having a trailer for your boat will pay for itself with: hauling, repairing, storage, and its great to look out back and see it every morning keeps you motivated to git r done.... saw a guy with a homemade trailer, mounted storebought jackstands, back up to his boat unbolt the back crossmember, back up under the boat, reattach the crossmembers and use the jackstands to lift the boat, i think it was a catalina 27.... a razerback should be able to make something work....
