Building a trailer for an O/I 41

I am building a trailer for my O/I 41 and would dearly love to have any hull measurements anyone may have, otherwise I'll need to haul it just to make the measurements. I would dearly like to avoid that if possible.
Thanks
John

I'm sorry I'm not able to help you, but I HAVE to ask ...

You're building a trailer for a 27,000 pound boat with a 14-ft. beam? Are you an engineer?

Respectfully,

Kurt

Yes. I need the trailer because the winter storage facilities in this part of the east coast are not in the marina but across the street (go figure). Boats are removed each year by crane and placed on trailers to be hauled to the storage location. So I need a trailer as the facilities around here don't supply them (again....go figure). Funny thing is, everybody has a trailer....power or sail...large or small.....all go on trailers.
My other alternative is to take the boat a days sail from my location to a marina that has the facilities. Again, lousy alternative as it will require an overnight sail and in the fall weather here can get crappy quick, and they charge astronomical fees.
So, I'm going to build a trailer, ergo the need for the measurements.
Thanks
John

Wow ...

That's more of an explanation than I deserved, John. For a minute, I wasn't sure I was reading your original post correctly. Man, I've got to tip my hat to you and wish you good luck on the project!

Hey cousin...

I have a custom built trailer for my OI41. If you go to the Yahoo groups, Morgan owners group photo section:
yahoo.com/group/morganowners/photos
You can see some pictures of it. The main feature is adjustable side supports that allow you to move them in and out eaisly. I used salvaged large turnbucles from a bridge construction company. The boat sits on her keel and they uprights only have to support the tipping weight. Email me for more pix if you need them. sv.horizon(at)yahoo.com

My last was an 82 O/I 416 ketch. I am impressed with anyone that could build a trailer that could have hauled. Moved it once by professsional group, Blue Water in Hampton VA, and it was not an easy job. The biggest obstacle for these guys was was guide wires from utility poles. Perhaps you could buy one, old or from mover out of business, and re-work. I would put a posting out in Florida where many O/I are to boat yards, salvage folks, and the Mrg group. Just a thought. Good luck

When I go, let it be by boat, with a steady breeze on the Chesapeake with a bottle of 7-up, a bag of ice, a plastic cup, and a box of wine
