Hey Brian, was just wondering about the trailer that you have the 37 on, didn't you have a gooseneck for the calvin? If you don't mind me asking who builds that trailer and what ratings are the axles?
The trailer was originally built as a gooseneck by a trailer builder close to where I live (Scotts Trailers), and it was a gooseneck when the Calvin was on it. Don't try google'n scotts trailers, he knows how to build trailers, but probably doesn't own a computer or even heard of the internet. Once we started building the Wegleys, we chopped the gooseneck off and turned it into a bumper pull. Takes up a lot less shop space as a bumper pull. Triple axle, axles are 7,000 lbs torsions with brakes on all axles, 16" e-rated 10 ply tires. You don't need truck brakes with how much braking power the trailer brakes have. Here is a few pics of the trailer with a 32' Wegley on it. We could have slid the boat ahead about a foot, so there was a little less overhang over the back. Overall length is about 29'. I'm actually going to list this trailer on craigslist tonight or tomorrow, I need to sell it real quick. Only been in the water 4 times. Built with 8" steel I beams, and 3" tube cross members every 4', this thing would haul a tank.
We got a 25 Alward on the dock at my marina.
Though not a downeast (I believe a Novi built) pretty cool boat.
For 25 ft boat it has a pretty wide beam and has a pretty cool center dog house allowing you to fish 360.
