Default Boat trailer detachable tongue.

Anyone have any pics of a detachable tongue on a boat trailer? I saw one at the Cincy boat show last year but can't remember what it looked like. My boat will fit in my shop but would be a little easier if the tongue was removable.

it really is a swing away tongue.. the brake line still runs threw there so it's pinned on one side and the other makes the swing part of it.. which's normally just a bar hing...

Most trailers, even if there not swing away trailers the tongue is removable. Put jack stands under the trailer side frames in the front and unbolt the tongue. If you have surge brakes you will have to disconnect the line from the tank. The whole tongue should slide right out. I'm not to fond on the swing away tongue trailer. To me it seems a little dangerous if the pin ever broke while you were driving. I only have to do it in the winter when I put it in my garage. If you had to do it every time you use the boat then it would be a pain in the a$$.

I have a trailer with a swing away tongue I had custom made. I'll be selling it in about a week. This salt water down here is killing it. The rust you see is surface..not thru. If interested PM me. Its set up for a 27' boat. 6K# capacity.
