Creative ideas for loading 38''''er on trailer w/out crane?

dman, you miss my point. Have you seen the pics of the interior of this boat? Are you saying that because the keel will be supported everything will be fine? The dynamics of a vessel on a trailer can be pretty severe.

Imagine this: Traveling at 50 mph, one side of the traler hits a pot hole or plate in the roadway. The resulting dynamic force is driven up to the hull, which is supported by the keel (which the current owner already says is suspect) and the poppits at points around the hull. Will the hull be able to withstand that point impact with little or no bulkheads and stringers on the port side? Force=Mass X Velocity so of course the hull will be subject to far greater dynamic forces than just moving gently around a yard.

I for one, remove my rig every winter when the boat is on the hard. Not only safer, but it gives me a great chance to carefully inspect everything before spring comissioning.

Silmaril Do you think these trailers are rigid frames?They have airride suspension.If this boat is in such terrible condition it shouldn`t be on the road to begin with.Brace it temporarly inside with wooden braces.Another creative idea would be to reduce it with chopsaws for removal somewhat like denr said.I am making light of the situation however forget the formula force=mass x velocity and go with( dolars + time+junk=junk)

trueblue I am very sorry that you are feeling terrorized.It doesn`t take much to get you scared.I bet you got stocked up on duck tape and plastic to ward off the evils of the world.If all these people that you are mentioning dominate your life ,then it would be you that needs to get a life or seek medical help for paranoia.Anyone else feel terrorized? war criminals, child molesters ,and myself? You say this ******** and wonder why their is aggression.You talk about cowards attacking people my friend,it is you who throws these insults unlike any I have ever heard on this forum before.Comparing us to child molesters?I wonder how many people you say that to in the real world,not in your little cyberlife.Well I know the answer to that?

dman, I know full well that the trailers have suspensions. But you just have to look at the wreck this guy is suggesting to move! Go to the link he posted in buying a boat and the thread identify this Irwin. I would be suprised if it made it off the lot, none the less down the road for any distance. Just was trying to prevent a traffic jam on some poor communities highway when the thing colapses and spreads itself all over the road.

Silmaril I just took a look.The best thing that could happen is that it implodes and I see your concern of a traffic jam.Now I think my point of a using a chopsaw reducing it in size requires too much work not worthy of such a vessel.This reminds me of buying my first car at sixteen,just wish someone would have used a saw on it.Telling someone that the boat they are trying to buy or bought ,is garbage, is not an insult but a cold reality.Now I think my formula relating to junk applies here more than ever and the worse case scenario would be bracing this "thing" too well and having it show up at another location(your town).The "ss minow" looked much more seaworthy.If you can afford to fix this vessel up than you can afford a brand new one ready to go. Just my 3 cents worth!

trueblue While some of us try to put a little humor in here and probably get carried away with sarcasm ,I have no intention of personalizing these forums into name calling.I do not carry grudges and if I make a comment do not take it as such.Feel free to write on this forum, I am not targeting anyone.The are many different personalities on this site and i find it a treat when they respond.Bottom line Don`t take it so seriously. Appology accepted
