Hey Fellas,

I recently moved into a new apartment that will not let me keep kayaks, much less a trailer, on the premises. So, I am storing them at a marina. I currently own a Jackson Cuda 14' but I'm looking to add a Pro Angler 14---only if I can store both on a single trailer.

My question is, can it be done? Or, is there something about the Hobie's shape that will not allow me to stack the Cuda on top of the Hobie? I'm thinking about storing the Pro Angler on the trailer and then sitting and securing the Cuda on top of it with tie downs. I would NOT be transporting them this way, only storing them at the marina. For transportation purposes, I would trailer the Hobie and car port the Cuda, like I currently do.

I would prefer to stick with a single jet ski/boat trailer.

What do you think? Would this be an acceptable solution? Do you see anything wrong with this? Is there anything about the Hobie's shape that would prevent me from doing this?

Thanks!!!

---Carlos

Here is my modified trailer. I carry a Ride 115X on top but could easily put larger/longer pipes to carry another. Actually have room to carry two up top.

Wish it had a longer tongue. I'm used to 30' Travel Trailer and can almost back it an 30 mph. Backing this is like trying to thread a needle with your eyes closed.

Also wish I had more garage space like you. My yak and trailer is in garage and my Tundra is sitting in the driveway. Something is just not right about that.

I have done a double up for my Hobies using a Harbor freight utility trailer. Works great no problems at all and it is simple to use as a single-you just don't add the sides or the top deck. It is so lightweight my little Scion pulls it no problem and still gets me 38 mpg!
