Re: What size trailer is needed for a 24ft sailboat?

If you are going to trailer regularly long distance, you may want the trailer brake. However, if you are going to be using the trailer rarely and locally, you can get away without the brake in a boat of that weight. Most of the weight should be on the keel. It will help distribute weight if you use bunks rather than rollers.

Success! I have purchased an old (2003) galv dual axle trailer which just needs a few slight repairs and the addition of brakes. Ebay purchase, very happy. Thanks for all of your input. Now I can go and get the boat.
