Does anyone know the measurement of the fixed keel from the point of the bow or the water line to the aft of the keel, and the height of the bunks. Any drawings or diagram of below water line would be of help. Will be loading on trailer in water, I have not loaded a sailboat yet and need to know if I have the right trailer. Any help is great, thanks

Did you measure from where the pipe mounts to the trailer for each support (IE: trailer cross beam to the top surface of the carpeting on the pads for the front supports, and top of the trailer side rail (C channel) to the top surface of the carpeting on the pads for the middle and rear supports)?

Yes. Those are from the bottom of the welded post (top of the trailer C channel) to the top of the pad where it contacts the boat.

That is a great drawing. I wish I had it setting up my trailer. All I could find was plans for a cradle, but it got me pretty close. An adjustable trailer is a must. I spent all day in the water making adjustments the first time.

Yes it is a Trail-rite trailer. I had to replace the break system several years ago (rusted solid) but it still works. Just enough to help with slowing down. I had it set too tight before and was actually locking the front wheels...they are the only ones with the brakes. Once the surge was released the brakes also released so they are not as effective as say continuously applied electric brakes. The best thing for me was installing the load sharing receiver. That was huge in helping control the push effect coming down a steep grade. That and the truck I used to haul it was a Ford F-350 duelly. #128077;#127996;
