Hi Jim,

Sadly parting with my 17'Montauk", could be a Nausett with newer console? Any feedback greatly appreciated! Looking for an Outrage after I sell her. Here's the link.

Nice looking boat. Roller trailer is a real concern, however.... Tailer has no value.

Whalers should be kept on bunk trailers. This is because the rollers support the hull in hull positions that were not designed to support that much constant weight that would come from storage on a trailer. On a bunk trailer the center rollers should be set up so that they/the keel of the whaler supports the majority of the boat's weight.

Here's the CW article on trailers:

Thanks GA, really appreciate the input. Should have joined this great group before I bought the trailer. Do you know where i could find the bunks to convert this trailer? I live in CT.

Peace

On a light 16' hull, no worries about rollers. On a heavier 18+ outrage, etc I would be VERY hesitant. I had my 15' on rollers for it's entire life and she was perfect...relax and enjoy.

Thanks Tohsgib, I trailer with the engine up. Does anyone recommend the using a brace between the engine and last keel roller?

Not necessary but try and tow with engine down.
