I need specific measurements/dimensions on the Tandem Island so I can properly setup my trailer to accept delivery.
More specifically, where to place the cradles on the trailer to ensure proper support.
So I bought a trailer anticipating the arrival of my new Tandem Island. It is the Yakima Rack & Roll 78.
Everyone told me not to get it because the span between crossbars is only 48 inches when I need 76... however, that is somewhat easily remedied with some metal fabrication and ingenuity.
To be quite honest, the benefit of the Rack & Roll's compactness and ability to stow up out of the way against a wall in my garage far outweighed the effort I would need to take in order to make it work.
That, and I was able to purchase it at near to cost
Anyway, the information I require:
I've read that the spacing of the cradles should ideally be 76 inches apart and should brace the boat at the drive wells (?).
My question is how far back is the front drive well from the bow of the boat, and/or, likewise, the rear from the stern?
