Thread: Hauling a canoe

  1. #1

    Default Hauling a canoe

    The rear of my Clipper MacSport18 hangs three feet over my trailer. Since the rear is narrower, I haven't extended the bunks. Is it OK to haul the canoe with my outboard on it, or should I build some kind of extension? The outboard is an Evinrude 4 HP 2 stroke.

    I see some you guys hauling Hudson Bays with the outboard on, I didn't know if it was a problem.

    I had my ez-load trailer tongue extended (actually replaced with longer one) and also shifted the axles. I haul a Hudson bay freighter with a 140lb. 23hp Copperhead surface drive motor. Better to be on the safe side with these bumpy Alaska roads.

    The canoe stern rests right on the end of the trailer bunks.

    I would lay the two stroke on the bottom of the canoe, over the bunks.

    A two stroke can lay in the back of the truck.

    That's the plan for tomorrow. I want to build an extension, but I'm going fishing tomorrow.
