It's been in my family since NEW my grandfather bought it in 1978 in show room floor in florida. We live in michigan. The boat was handed down to me for free about 3 years ago. i've had it in rack storage.

But looking to be able to trailer it around.

You aren't going to like this, but you would be MILES ahead just buying a simple bolt together aluminum trailer for your boat. Not only is it going to be an "easy button", but it is going to support you boat MUCH better.

Let me send this to thp500s. He bought several trailers from a particular company. I'll get him to chime in.
