Worried about not sitting properly and developing a hook after several years of being on a trailer. I don't do alot of long distance travel.

if the bunks are cut right for the bottom, and the bunks extend beyond the transom, this isn't going to happen.

The whole hook thing is a bit overblown. Look at all the racked boats. Do you think a majority of these rack bunks are as properly supporting of the boat bottom as even the least supportive (junk or misfit) trailer?

The main reason i got the Myco was they are a (according to Rippem) manufacturer that deals directly with the boat manufacturers, other trailers are purchased by the customers, the Myco is made from bluprints to fit YOUR boat. the first time I loaded onto my Myco from the water on sunday, the boat sat perfect, first try!!! that can't be beat, proper support is the most important. Myco I believe is the only manufacturere that makes custom lift cradles as well. How much of the 5 grand will be left after you have to have the hull redone from bunks set up wrong? Less hassles at the ramp was a great benefit of the Myco. Call and Speak to Bill Tweedie, you wont be dissapointed...Rob

most racks are junk, but if i was getting a brand new boat and it was going to sit on the trailer all the time, it would be sitting on a myco.... and most trialer builders do source their parts from the same vendors, but every myco i have seen seems to be put together one notch above most trailers... is it worth 5k? i guess that is up to the one with the checkbook, but on a 200k boat i would do it....

and if you're not entirely happy with the fit of the big cypress bunks to the bottom of the boat...an afternoon of adjustment and whitling will achieve perfection, requiring only basic skills.

I would never spend the jack for anything more than a basic aluminum if I was not putting down alot of road miles. Like back and forth to Fla. every winter or something. Which is where I'd like to be!

If it's mainly just gonna be a service trailer for haulouts and winter storage the inexpensive trailer is perfect.

WRONG. Eagle has a long standing relationship with Formula and Baja among others.

EDIT: and with Fountain. There are alot of 35's sitting on Eagle HD tandem's.
