The boat has run 151 so far and ran out of gear with the big pulley's. Changed gears and have another 400 hp on tap with smaller pulleys if the notion strikes BG. I don't know what they ran today. I was on the bank as I have just had back surgery.

The tires are not spares. The trailer is so long that it falls off of the all of the local ramps and eventually buries into the mud before the boat will float. The trailer has steel skid plate jumpers that allow it to get back on the ramp and it it works very well. Once you get the trailer back as far as it will go, you hit a switch and all six tires raise up....they are on hydraulic rams inside of the mounts.....and the boat just rolls easily off into the water. Loads just as easily. When the boat is down on the runners there is absolutely no play, it is a very tight fit. Once you get it out of the water and tied down the trailer rotates the boat up nearly vertical...13'6" tall and 8'6" wide so that you do not have to have permits. There are pictures in Extreme boats of the trailer tilted, although not all the way up. The trailer is OFF THE HOOK! just the trailer weighs over 15,000 #'s.

Almost forgot....the trailer has six independant air bags with its own controller to equalized the load when tilted. Also, when you get it backed down the ramp, you hit a switch and it lays frame to drop the boat another 6 inches to help get it in the water. And has enough LED's that blink in an emergency pattern to look like the airport when you are tilting it.
