Trailer Question

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a used 17' dual counsel boat that came with a 1998 Northwoods trailer. The boat is labed as ~1650# max weight and the Northwoods trailer is rated for ~2600lb GVRW and 2100 Max load. I have a older 16' lund tiller that I am going to be selling, and this boat is sitting on a mint condidtion 2001 Shorelandr that's ~2600 GVRW, 2000# max load.

Both trailers are basically the same width and length, with the only diff. being the winch placement.

Do you see any problems with moving the winches and switching trailers? Being different brands of trailers the roller systems are different, but do I need to take anyting into consideration when going to a bigger boat on that trailer?

No, I think you'll be ok with changing trailers. Shouldn't be a big deal...

You may be a bit on the light side with either trailer with your boat - I'm guessing your 1650# max weight is w/o motor, gear, gas, etc, so you'll be close to the 2100# raiting either way.

Thanks. I was wondering about that Max weight tag. I didn't know if that included the motor or not.

There are only 2 classes of trailers that don't need license (just registration sticker), and have 2 different prices.

1500lbs and 3000lbs, over this you'll need a license plate and brakes.

I would just license it as 3000lbs and be set.

    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.
