I am planning on getting a pwc so that I can tow my H16 through some back channels to get to the ocean. I wanted to figure out a way that I could put my JetSki on my Trailer with the the Cat. Has anyone done this? If you have some pics would be great! Thanks in advance for your help!

Jeremy,

John Schroyer, in your part of the world, did the very same thing. Turned out the axle wasn't strong enough for the extra weight. The trailer parted company with the axle on the way to Midwinters West one year.

It can be done but you'll need to get a stronger axle/spring assembly.

If you have to ask, you live in a great place. PWC is personal watercraft, including jet skis, Waverunners, etc.

Amen to that!

Save some money and get a motor to mount on your boat.

I've seen it done before but it was with the old stand up pwc's. The guy made a flat bed between the hulls and placed it on cradles. It doesn't leave any room for a cat box.

I sail on a 67,000 plus square kilometre resevoir and I have yet to see another pwc. : )

one of our fleet members has a PWC, he uses it as rescue boat, also, my son does like to go out on it once in a while.

As for both a PWC and a Cat on the same trailor, I can probably have our comadore send you some pictures if you like.
