Does anyone know how to get a hold of Continental Boat Trailer Company. I'm interested in getting a price to compare a keel roller system trailer to a mutliple bunk float on trailer. I would like some clarificatiion regarding a 25' Revenge with Whalerdrive. Are the twin engine's and whalerdrive unsupported while loaded on a trailer or is the weight carried by the bunk suspension system of the trailer design. Im just starting to investigate how the whole trailer /boat package comes together.

Here you go:

The Whaler Drive will not be supported by the trailer bunks as it sits above the bottom of the hull by an inch or two.

The bunk trailer on my 25 Whaler Drive ends right at the transom. Since the WD is a few inches higher underneath it has nothing to rest on anyway. I'll e-mail you a picture if you want.

Thank you for the picture, I understand the way the boat and the bunk comes together now. Do you have a bunk and keel roller type of trailer? I plan on doing several road trips a year with the boat so a good trailer is important to me. Thanks again.

Tom W Clark,
Thank you for your information as well, I initially tried to reach continental trailer via the web, must of had a unseen typo. I found it now. Thank you

Mine is a keel roller type. As a note, my owners manual, and numerous posts here are very clear that the boat's weight should always be keel supported.

From BW Owner's Manual
for 18 foot - 25 foot Models

Page 21:

"The keel is designed to support the weight of the boat. For that reason, the trailer you select should contain center keel rollers to support the entire weight of the boat. Padded bunks should be located so they do not interfere with bottom spray rails and only to provide lateral stability".

The rest of page 21 addresses what bad thing happen to the foam if you select roller type trailer.

All right Russ! Congratulations on moving quickly. Hope the price was fair.

Regarding the Continental trailer, as I had said, you will have to drive to the FL Panhandle to get one, the closest distance for you. They're not sold outside of FL.

You can see pictures of mine on Cetacea page 4, and page 11 with the boat on it.

If you talk to Continental, you want model #CTWV24 in 8500LB capacity, with 15" wheels, and 4 wheel SS disc brakes. Expect to pay about $3000 for this. This is the same model I have, but in 6000lb capacity, only now it's made 8'-6" in width. The Revenge is just enough heavier than the Outrage to require the step-up to the higher load rating. Torsion axles may be an option, I don't know. You will also have to add a few extra rollers, since all cross members should have double 12" rollers on them. Mine has been excellent, and now has close to 100,000 miles on it after 13 years, and no rust. All bolts, as they needed replacement, have now been converted to SS. The dead weight of this trailer is about 950-1000#
