Those lesser expensive cradles won't fit boats with wider hull shapes...like F18, N20, etc. You would have to go with the $150 versions for those boats.

Yes. However, I think your Mystere will work with these lesser expensive ones, though. I had these under my 6.0 but when I switched to a Nacra 20 they would not fit and I had to replace them.

I like the rollers that were added to Macs trailer, makes it way easier.


These work well, they came on the back of my F18 trailer I got used.
They do leave black marks on the hulls, so I try and put a piece of carpet (no extra cradles currently) over them when trailering.

For my 6.0, (thinner hull profile), I made my own by
finding 12"ID PVC pipe scraps at construction sites,
cut them using jig saw,
and contact cement glued carpet to them.
I would use the flatter 'stove' bolts to secure to my trailer or my cat wheels. (under the carpet, bolt, then carpet)
Worked like a charm- bascially free, or low cost (carpet scraps and gule for free also- friends)

The polymer rollers aren't that much more expensive are they?

Todd, I'd put a cradle under the hull if I were you. Bouncing down the road is putting a fair amount of stress on a pretty small contact patch.

My trailer, I've got a single roller mounted at the back, and a cradle forward of it. The hull only touches the roller when it is being slid on the trailer. You can kinda see it here.

The guy who makes the double rollers (brett the owner of the nacra dealership icarussportsusa.com) never got me a price on the polymer rollers but he has been very cool to work with (even though i haven't purchased anything yet)

Your trailer set up looks great. 2 sets of cradles and rollers attached to the back.. how do you get the bows on without them hitting the deck?

I had him, Brett, add the clear/amber rollers to mine, they weren't much more. I don't remember how much more, but think it was less than $20. They are expensive but really nice, I'm very happy with them.

They hang past the back of the trailer just a bit. Cattrax a bit aft of the balance point, I push it around by the rear beam and just set the tips of the bow on the rollers. Then pick up the back of the boat by the rear beam and push it on.

Great setup, Karl. What kind of trailer is that?

It's a Triton four place snowmobile trailer. I picked it up from a local motorcycle/atv/snowmobile dealership for $1500 + tax/title. It was sold to me as new because the dealership that had it, used it for their own stuff, but it had never been registered. I think the double stack rack, and the rear mast stand cost me about $2500 to have custom built. I've got another few hundred in material for the sail box, and a zillion hours to build it.

I don't think I'd do it any other way, other than a dedicated enclosed trailer, which I don't have the funds for. It tracks stupid straight, rides nicely, and the boat is protected from anything the truck will kick up. Protecting the boat is the most important thing to me. It'll haul three complete boats pretty easily too.

Karl, you're not saying that you paid $2500 on top of the $1500 for the mods, are you?

Ronald, Karl doesn't have time to slow down enough to make turns...
