2900 is not going to buy you a new trailer for a 26' boat that is worth a hoot..

The bunks need to be cut out to accomadate the stepoped hull...

This guy Carl @ Diamond Marine in CT knows trailers they are the 2nd largest dealer in the county. He told me they put Fountains and Forumlas on these trailers all the time. He seems to be very knowelagable with preformance boats and trailers. Out of all the dealers I called for trailers he was by far the most knowelagable. What manufature do you guys reccomend for trailers. I live 1 mile from the marina ramp so traveling is not a problem. Thanks for the input

I'm not familiar with manufacturers in your neck o the woods, but I do know trailers, trailer parts and pricing.. 2900.00 is not going to get you a proper trailer for a 26' boat.. Call Frank @ Typhoon...

Are you talking about that 26 Donzi at Cove Marina in Norwalk sitting on that rusted out Performance trailer?

They cut the boards so your steps on your boat fit so your bottom is level, also price is more like $4,500 don't go cheap on a trailer you will regret it on long pulls;
