Re: My C-22 Project

Actually, the gray rectangle just ahead of the axle in the pictures is an aluminum keel pad on an adjustable keel crossmember. It has a vertical threaded rod on the port side that adjusts the height of the pad relative to the rest of the trailer. The trailer used to carry a Ranger 20, also with a swing keel.

Re: My C-22 Project

TOS - Are the rollers high enough to get the keel in? I don't have my C22 anymore, but, seems to me the bunks where about 18" higher than the keel rest. My trailer was adjusted so that when fully retracted the keel would just clear the rest. Then if I was hauling a long way I would lower the keel to let at least 500# of the weight be on that part rather than the hull of the boat. It is also handy to have some kind of channel that guides the keel into position when you are putting the boat on the trailer.

Re: My C-22 Project

I hope to test the fit this weekend. The rollers can be raised another few inches and the keel pad lowered a couple. If I go with this trailer, I'll probably mount some sort of guide-ons to center the keel.
