Not easily. The spring shackles are welded to the trailer, not u bolted. The trailer tracks great, as a Myco should, but it is just not very adjustable. It was never meant to be. I don't think the trailer was built for my boat, but that the prior owner bought it used.

Mitch is right. The trailer is huge. It used to be a race boat trailer with a drive gaurd. The previous owner, for God knows what reason, cut the drive gaurd off!!! With it gone, the trailer is really long, and the boat sits far enough forward on the bunks that the drives can hit the rear lower cross member of the trailer (the one with the lights in it). Sliding the boat back is not an option as it will never hit the forward bow support (it can't be slid any farther back on the trailer tongue). The entire boat needs to go about 2' further onto the trailer but can't in it's present state.

Good thing Steve gave you that paint eh Mitch??

Yes, it is wrong, I have a friend who is not using his slip until mid may, it is about 1/4 mile from my house so that is the ticket. Should start this week. I have 3 feet behind the boat and 10 in front of it. I can go forward 3 feet and then the engines are over the axle, right now they sit completely off the axle, any farther back and I would have negative tonge weight.

Nice boat man. Where do they make those? I used to own one of Rick Denboer's old 311's. You'll have to race his 382. It's pretty fast from what I hear.
About the 83mph, I think I might have to see that first hand, so don't hesitate to call me for another sea trial, I'm only a couple miles from you and the beer store is on the way..


Did you get the Thundercat put away for the season?
