i was thinking of trailering my 11' foot flat bottom shadowcraft boat this year because of my bad back. i am looking for some suggestions as to what kind of trailer to get. Does a regular boat trailers work on a small flat bottom boat like mine?
I have a ten foot flat bottom that I trailer on a regular 4 x 8 utility trailer. I have a set of wheels that can go onto the back of the boat to be able to wheel it into the water.
I find this way I have the trailer for other uses, such as hauling the garbage to the transfer station or picking up some soil, where a boat trailer would be single use. I can even pack gear into it, beneath the boat, when I go out.
I made a couple of 2 x 2 supports to hold the boat of the edges of the trailer and use a couple of ratcheting straps to hold it down on the trailer.
