Starwind 22 trailer questions
I am working on converting a powerboat trailer into a trailer for a Starwind 22..
I have a aluminum twin torsion axle powerboat trailer for a slightly more than 25' fishing boat (est. 6000#), and a Starwind 22, (that I love and am hauling out for the winter in SC)..
If anyone has done anything similar I'd love to hear some advice !
Do you have any tips, or anything surprising that you learned while you were trying to fit the boat to the trailer ?
Does the majority of the weight rest on the front of the swing keel, with the bunks just serving to keep the boat upright ??
What is your ballpark tongue weight ?
How wide apart are your bunks, and how high are they from the spot that the keel rests ??
Any help you could give me would be great !!
I know I'll have to in and out at the ramp a few times, and probably get in the water with her, but any advise will surely cut down on the need for both !!!
