    My trailer was homemade. Lots of issues. I ordered a new one that should be here before my new hulls are done. I’ll have to modify to hold the boat, but at least it’s made to carry up to 14k lbs, and 35 ft. My homemade trailer could handle the weight on the axles, but the steel I used wasn’t quite stiff enough for the length. It didn’t help that I kept making the boat heavier and longer.
