Thanks for input, I have wandered on the effect of transferring tongue weight with the extention. I'm only out $50.00 for the cost of material so it's not a big deal. but no harm looking at alternatives.

how long is the straight section of your trailer , mine measures 8'6"
when i took the boat for a test sail we launched it and there was still dry ground behind the truck when it floated off .
,dont know if it was just a good ramp

think you had a good ramp,my trailer set up looks to be the same as yours. thinking I'll stow the auxilary extention below the tongue with welded square section brackets and pinned in place. Then drill holes in a couple of places to give me alternative lengths as needed, with a hitch up front to couple to the truck ball. Still to play with this yet.

I should be able to get some table pics and dimentions posted soon.

That's exactly what I have & works great. I only pinned it in one place though, at the longest extension. When I'm at the ramp a few extra feet on the tongue makes little difference to me.

For now I'll keep it full length, I may not need that, if I find the shorter set up better I can still achieve that.

Nice to know it works.
finished the bottom blister repairs, now have 3 coats epoxy/grafite mix, should last a while

Thanks, lot of uncomfortable, dirty work in that. but I have peace of mind now. One blister (just below the waterline) was almost through the hull. Glad I found it before the water did.
