    Default Floating Boat trailer

    This was the trailer a built for this boat and my concern was to get lower as possible, so a decentrer the axle and the frame. The result was very good, hitch it whit a car ( Vibe) a dint have to get to far down in to the water to let the boat go. What was funny is the trailer was floating when the boat is launch,,,becose of the frame are weldind seal and whit the tire full of air, it's float a bit

    That tongue looks awfully long for the size of the square tube. Unless it’s some magical steel I bet it doesn’t last long if you go over many bumps. Might consider installing a piece of flatbar inside the tube to help matters.
    Caution!

    tank's for your reply Sonora, and yes the tongue is long and just at the right longuer. At the end of it, when a hitch, it's weight near 45 pounds and perfect balance, whit 3/4 of the weight on the axle. The tongue is 2x2x1/4'' tick. A check before built this trailer whit other of the same size, and they all built whit this kind of 2x2 long tongue! Ricau

    Might want to plug in some numbers to this calculator to see where you’re at.

    Looks nice.
    Was it any trouble loading the boat back onto it?

    If I was going to use 2-by-something 1/4-wall tube for the tongue, I would have used 2x4 on edge, rather than 2x2. Other than that, the trailer looks nice.
