Using powerboat trailer with 23' Paceship?
Hi there folks--
New member to the forum. I just bought a 23' 1976 AMF Paceship PY23. Problem is, it's about 200 water-miles away from where I need it to be, but only 50 miles away over roads--but it came without a trailer.
Short of finding someone with a purpose-built trailer for this particular model boat, is it possible, for just one short day's move, to use a power boat's trailer of similar size/weight capacity to move the sailboat?
Specifically we have in mind a friend's trailer that is designed for a 25' Sea Ray Cruiser--a boat that weighs in at 4,000 lbs. The trailer's got rollers on it, etc but I'm not sure how the bunks will match up with the hull.
