Nomad trailer for ramp launching
I have been working diligently to retrofit (basically rebuild) a replacement trailer for my Nomad, soon to be rechristened "MAGGIE". The old trailer was a single axle, tow stern first, short unit. The new trailer is tandem axle, tows bow first and is 6 feet longer without the extension. I custom fitted her to the boat, fabricating many of the pieces myself. I also fitted her with stainless and Dacromet coated Kodiak disc brakes. She almost seemed like she wanted to go on the trailer when I had her lifted. I had calculated and measured for the proper tongue weight and was aiming for 12%. When she was loaded, 10.99%! I need to make guides and wire the new LED lights and then she will be (Hopefully) towed to her home port where she will reside on her trailer and await adventures. My dream is to be able to tow her anywhere and launch from many ramps. I will sling her where that is not possible. I have attached a few pictures.
