Where do I find a trailer for a CAL 24?

To anyone who can help,

My friend is the owner of a 1969 CAL 24 sailboat. The boat has a drop keel. I am unsure of how to find the appropriate trailer, or how to alter a trailer to fit the boat. I basically have no idea where to begin. Any suggestions would be extremely helpful. Thank you for your time.

Milwaukee. How did you approach the project? Did you look up plans? Did you convert a trailer?

Chris,

I own a Lancer 25, probably about the same size and weight as yours. I bought an aged EZ-Loader trailer for a power boat and raised the roller assemblies up to meet the hull. I was lucky enough to find my exact boat sitting on a trailer at a marina not too far away so I went over with a camera, a tape measure and a sketch pad. Then I bought some scrap steel tubes from work (actually arms for extrusion racks) and bolted everything together. It's worked great for three years but it rusts and looks terrible. This year I'll be replacing them with steel channel and having them galvanized.

I'm in Eagle River Wi, I started with a inter net drawing of a Cal 28 then drew my trailer over the drawing . Center the keel slighty ahead of the back Axle Plan on tandoms. Mine came out of a travel trailer ,drop axles are best. Do you have a cradle for your boat ? as you could use it just add to it!

Cal 24 trailer

I own a a 1961 Cal 24 with a centerboard and it is on a Tandem trailer that was built for the boat. I have owned 2 Cal 24s in my 50 years of sailing experience along with several other Cal's. I could send pictures of the trailer if you want. My recommendation is to go to a reputable trailer uilder and have one made. I know .... spend $2,500 for a $1,000. boat ! But it will be worth it !
