We're making the ten hour drive to pick up Paul's 17 this weekend.
We're taking the "best" H16 trailer we have, as we're searching for an appropriate trailer, and until we get the boat back home we won't know exactly what will work (may end up modifying a 16 trailer).
I know the beam of the 16 & 17 is the same but obviously the keel centerline will be narrower on the 17. Anyone know what the centerline dimension is? Other than spraying down the roller bolts with Liquid Wrench, in anticipation of making adjustments, any thing else we should plan for? I thought about getting some 2x8's to span from front to back on either side, for fear of point loading on the single rollers, or is this overkill for one ten hour trip?
