That's my question. I'd be a bit nervous spinning a pair of labbed props over my trailer on a shallow ramp

This is what I'm trying to figure out.
I can see the cuts in the Diamond plate, but can't see anything in the frame rail of the trailer - or any sign of hinges.
Plus, the back-up / reverse lights in that area starts to raise a problem.
I only see where (if it has hinges) it could swing "over" - it sure as he!l isn't going to swing "around".

Don't get me wrong, I like the idea of being able to walk all around the trailer, but how do you launch off this thing??

The boat's from Idaho, maybe they know something up there that the rest of us haven't figured out yet.
They grow some good spuds though.

The bumper actually works very well. With the rear section of the diamond plate lifted or removed you just have to trim / move the drives up over the bumper and it launches as well as it would without the bumper in place. With the rear diamond plate deck in place you can load your stuff in the boat and easily access the rear pad for loading and unloading. The props are very sharp so I put that section of the diamond plate close to the props to try to avoid loosing any toes but it is removable. I do a lot of driving at night to and from the lake and wanted to not only protect the drives, make getting in and out of the boat easier but light it up at night as well.

As for the two into one exhaust - I can only tell you that originally it exited through the swim platform that I assume was original. It was very broken up, very heavy, and we removed it a year or two ago but left the rest (what you can see) alone. The holes are glassed in where the exhaust comes out so I had not worried much about water or rot. I believe it has been that way since Wellcraft built it. As for a reduction in power… I don’t know since it is the only exhaust the boat has had and this is my only experience with twin engine boats such as this.

Sorry I didn't see this sooner or I would have tried to answer your questions.

When you live in the north you can become very creative to keep your feet out of the fridged water until the middle of July
