Re: Trailer Questions

Small world, eh? I didn't know that was THE BOAT AND TRAILER that we were talking about. There were a number of photos of other S2 7.9s on roller trailers that I could have used. I chose that photo because it showed a nice boat and trailer and it illustrated my point. The buyer should be very happy with it. Congrats to both of you!

Re: Trailer Questions

I've been trailering boats around for 30 years. That overhang on the transom is normal and okay, 3000 miles is some first trip - wow!!!

Where is he taking the boat? Goood luck!!

Re: Trailer Questions

The S2 7.9 with a beam of 9' should have over size permits(permits have time limits and some places have curfews). Most police do not look at non commercial trucks moving a boat that size, California is another story chech with them and make sure you are following the permit limitations.

That said the main issue would be the tow vehicle the trailer barrings and tires.

Safe trip.
