    IMG_0517.PNG Been looking at Florida and other places for boats. Found this Century. Check out the short trailer it sits on. Is this a Bubba setup, or are the extended bunks really that strong? It's $10,000 and low hours, but that hillbilly trailer scares the piss out of me.

    Typical for east coast.

    You want west coast frame rails....

    They are extra $$.

    looks real similar to my buddy 19' Cobia's trailer. Aluminum with 3x5 yellow pine rails. We towed it from Arizona to up here in norcal no problems, and he tows it almost every weekend to foothills, delta where ever,,,gregg

    Bought a set up just like that from a guy that towed it all the way from south charolina , it was a 22' boat on a short single axel trailer, i picked up the boat in torrance and 20 minutes later i was a sigalert on the 405 fwy ! The tire blew apart and took the fender with it! I sold that trailer and bought a nice duel axel trailright trailer with disc brakes

    Florida guys use trailers for hurricane evacs and not a whole lot else. Knowing your budget, and for that price, put it on a flat bed and spend the money on an aluminum trailer built out here.

    What's the length of the boat? How heavy is it? If it's a light boat, you night get away with a single axle.

    Anyway, it sounds like a great deal but if it was so great, why is it still available? Especially during prime boating season?

    Market out there for CCs is super saturated, especially for 18-24 ft boats, hence why so many of them end up getting trailered out here.

    While those cantilevered bunks may work, I think they would have to sag over time. The boat would sag with it, introducing hook into the hull. Hook makes the boat stick to the water, rendering it unresponsive to upward trim inputs. Good for rough water, but sucks for efficiency for cruising on smooth days.

    Ya, there's a glut of CCs in the southern coast--or the whole eastern seaboard for that matter. Too bad they adopted 4-stroke outboards later than we did.

    The length of the trailer frame doesn't mean much, there's no need for it to extend all the way to the back of the boat. The bunks are typically large timbers or aluminum and sometimes a combination of the two, with a hull friendly surface.

    While it may look odd to someone not familiar with it, they work just fine.

    I'd want to know the trailer tongue weight. It looks like the winch mast is all the way forward and the axle appears to have a lot of weight behind it IMO.

    A single axle with a lite tongue would be my concern.

    The trailers are balanced just like any other trailer, the style of the trailer just makes it look different. If it's wrong it's for the same reason as on a normal trailer, the person set it up wrong, it would just need to be adjusted.

    These are the same comments and concerns voiced on every forum when people first see a southeast style trailer. These are normal and standard on about every type and brand of boat built in that part of the country
