Thanks.:D

But, these two guys get a lot of the credit too. Couldn't have done it without them.:)devil (They're my engine experts);) They're the only other guys I have to bounce ideas off of, so that's why I'm on here (plus I get a little bored sometimes):D. That yellow boat in the shop is a jet too, it's a 21'er.;)

Will do! Thanks for the heads up, I didn't realize they would float that much.

Good thing is the ramp it will be launched on the most is only big enough for one boat.:D And the gate to the ramp has a big ol' lock on it, so it doesn't get a lot of traffic.:D But, I have a key.;)

Yeah i think those trailers were built for a smaller hull, like the miller.

I have fiberglass to, its a competition trailer with fiberglass fenders. I will try to find a pic

Yeah, there is a story behind this boat and trailer combo, but I can't remember it. But, I think it involved a boat sinking or something like that.:)st

It's a much nicer trailer, than the ones that I believe the Hawaiians originally came off of. I think the original trailer was a single axle trailer and I'm not sure if it was made from boxed tubing or channel iron.

It just needs to be re-rigged to fit the boat.:)bulb

Okay HJ... here it is again. I admire your passion for your jet boat, but sometimes less typing and more reading is in order.


My Competitive trailer has fiberglass fenders and steps. The trailer has never floated.

Yeah its a nice trailer, are you extending your bunks past the end of the trailer, maybe its the pic but it looks like the boat hangs off the end , and that can cause some hook from what i hear..... main thing is , your gonna get it wet and im jealouse:)devil

All i could find for now.


And you should invest in some decals. I got these from Brad @ SoCalJetBoats.Com:)devil


2sav:D
No step???:)eh:)

How do you get into the boat?:D I climb all over mine, those fiberglass fenders are surprisingly strong.

I still have to do some work to the trailer to be able to even get the boat to the water. One of the tires is leaking around the bead, I need to check the wheel bearings and replace the old grease with new grease, I need lights (every single one of them is broken:mad:), and I need to come up with a better front attachment point at some time.

I've heard from several Miller owners, with this exact same trailer, and they have all told me that it floats!

Huh, is it boxed tubing as well?:)bulb (Don't know if this has anything to do with it, but I'm sure it doesn't hurt the trailers buoyancy problem)

Notice I said my COMPETITIVE trailer. Same as 2Sav's I believe. No it isn't a tube frame. Most tube trailers leak at the welds or are not fully welded and benefit from having weep holes. This would also help keep the trailer under water.
