Trailer

Hey Everyone,
I am still waiting to get my Islander 30 from Anacortes to Spokane. I have a trailer to rent for a few bucks. If anyone has one here in Washington Idaho or Oregon has got one for sale that needs works let me know. I have bought the boat now I just got to get it home to start my refit.
Thanks
Jeff

If you want a new trailer, about 3500 for a boat yoursize, there is a place in Bellingham that custom builds trailers. My stepdad had one done recently for his 26' boat. The only issue I have with it, is they put the axles too far forward, and when the boat was put on it, the tail was too heavy. So we need to move the axels back about 2' to have enough HW.

I am actually looking for something used. Or even something that I can get measurements from and then build myself. I can get a couple of heavy duty axles here at work for pretty cheap with brakes. I know that as soon as I get it figured out I will be driving by a field and see one with a free sign hangin from it. That would be just my luck.

islander trailer

I have a trailer that was built for a 28 foot boat, its super heavy duty, but the axles are shot. I only need it to move my boat from Spokane to Portland. If you can get a deal on axle’s maybe we can work something out. The trailer is a beast; we picked it up to move our islander 26. The trailer was initially built for a cal 28 I believe, but unfortunately the breaks and axles are shot (they don’t make the parts anymore) not sure the specs on your islander but it may work. If you have any questions shoot me a line.
