    Posted: 08 Aug 2011 at 10:17pm
I'm looking at getting an extension of some sort put onto my boat trailer to make beach launching a bit easier. I thought maybe a folding type galved box section so it can be folded out the way when not used.
The trailer is a Watercraft single axle with a Stabi 509 on top.
Has anyone on the forum had any experience getting this done? Any advice will be appreciated.

I also had a chat to the Ulric street guy re some trailer mods and he seemd pretty clued up.  Had a boat trailer getting brakes installed whilst I was there.

Be aware that if you modify the existing trailer too much the WOF authority may ping you for a ripoff engineers report!!!
 
I remember a forum member using a single separate bar arrangement that simply had a ball on one end and coupling on the other and stored it on the trailer.
