Looking to purchase a trailer and/or sailbox for a Hobie 16. Preferably in the midwest but I will also be making a trip out east in the coming weeks.

I've got a trailer I'm selling, although I haven't got around to putting it on the market. It came with a late 70's era what is now a part boat and I don't need two trailers. Tires need replacing and the electric is crap. The metal looks good, though, and it rolled 30 miles without the bearings heating up at all.

However, I'm not sure a trip to New Hampshire is defined by you as coming "east." Let me know and I'll get some pictures of it and let you know the price.

The trailer is in good enough shape I'd fix it up, but as I said, I've got a working trailer and don't need two.

Best of luck,

Jim Clark-Dawe

That's what I thought, but I figured I'd offer.

Zach, are you still looking for a trailer in Indiana? I've got a galvanized trailer in very good condition in Culver, IN.

Jay, the trailer is great. Solid construction and it tows great. I really like the bunk/cradles and side guides. Also, the 12" tires are great for long rides and bumpy roads.

Here are some pictures of the trailer. Now I'm weighing the pros and cons of different sail boxes now:
-PVC pipe
-HDPE corrugated pipe
-aluminum spiral duct
-galvanized spiral duct
-aluminum framed box
-all wood box
-fiberglass skin over wood frame
