Ok, boat trailer dilemma: Long story short I bought a new boat package in 2006 (yes I ranted about the dealer for the undersized trailer in a post a couple of years ago) and I was overloading the trailer. So I purchased a new trailer and specíed out the best features like EOH with disc brakes, torsion axles, C-Channel frame, HDbunks, spare with hub, etc. I forgotabout moving the axles!
I fit the boat to the trailer like youíre supposed to which was perfect aligned transom tie downs and then check tongue weight which was high 1000 lbs out of 8300 lbs. Then move axles right, well no itís C channel galvanized bolt thru the bottom flange. So I moved the boat back and Iím almost out of space for the winch post and Iím about at 900 lbs tongue weight. Iím trying to target 700 lbs.
Iím afraid to drill the c channel and move axles. I could drill into the top cross bar (6Ē cchannel) to move the winch post back about 4 inches and bolt it. Not crazy about compromising the galvanized coating even with cold zinc as a possibility or Iím I overly concerned about cold zinc protection? Ideas? Thanks
