Trailer Needed

Good Morning,

Just wanted to see if anyone in the Svannah GA area has a trailer they could rent (loan) me for a little bit to get a possible purchse home. It is an O'day 25 with the swing keel. My plan is to pull it to the house and build a structure to hold it in the yard for repairs. Any Suggestions?

Thanks
Ronnie

You're probably going to want to keep it on the trailer... 25' doesn't sould that big until you go to move it off the trailer.

Tanks for the info guys and gals. Just being hardheaded I guess. Guess I will just keep it at the yard. Just wanted to put more money in the boat and not spend it on Storage. Still very new to all of this.

If your not real far from the yard ask them what it would cost to move it home and back. It may not be that Ex$pensive

deniseO30 has a good point about transporting cost, especially for a 25 footer. Before you just run out and get a trailer, see what other O'day owners trailers look like such as do the bunks run length wise along the hull or do they form a series of V's on the trailer such as us Macgregor types. You don't want to stress the wrong areas on the boat.

An idea on my "to do list" for lifting the boat off the trailer is to build a box structure with heavy duty lifting slings. Of course I probably want to build a building out back before that so this is most likely going to end up in the "one of these day's" pile of plans.

Maybe best looking for a boat with a trailer.

New trailer $4k
Boat without trailer $2k
Boat with trailer $3k

The numbers have been changed to protect the innocent but the idea is real.
