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.

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.

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.

it might work

Look at mine - the keel slides onto that wood beam and it bears a lot of weight.

Re: My C-22 Project

Thanks for the replies, guys.

As one more reality check, if you can look at the attached pictures and confirm back that the trailer looks to be equipped the same, I'd really appreciate it. I've inspected the trailer and it will need a couple hundred dollars worth of new bushings and such but appears solid with only slight surface rust. The tires are 4 years old. I called EZ Loader and they think it will work fine despite not having records back that far.

The next step would be to take my boat and his trailer to the nearest ramp and see how they fit together and what adjustments would need to be made.

Thanks again,
Ken

P.S. Sorry if I hijacked this thread

His trailer looks pretty much like the one that came with my C22.. works fine.

Yes I can distribute the weight . I can drive down the highway 75 mph with no problem didn't even feel like I was towing anything.

Re: My C-22 Project

When I bought my c22 it was in really bad shape. Yours times ten with green mung on top of the black spots. I used a solvant called Purple Power it comes in a purple container and it is environmentally safe. Be careful, there is another called the same but not in a purple container and it doesn't perform. The Purple Power cleans everything and you can buy it at Napa Auto Parts.

Finally back to work

Well, after a bit of a hiatus I'm finally back to work on the boat. Between a heavy work load, getting engaged and my fiance graduating Navy Basic there just wasn't any time. Glad to be making progress though. The picture attached is my buddies boat that he is restoring along side mine here in the hangar. Anyone know what it is???
