Double sneakbox trailer?
Hello all,

I?m looking for ideas to trailer two sneakboxes together. I?ve been hunting a 12? Classic Barnegat Fiberglass sneakbox the last few years but decided this year to convert a sunfish so I could invite the less equipped friends to tag along. I?ve considered a double jet ski trailer but I?m not sure they would be long enough as the sunfish is a 14? boat and the longest jet ski trailer I?ve found up to this point is 15? tongue to tail. Any ideas or experience would be much appreciated.


Thanks,
Curt

Just to add, I have also considered an ?A? frame type bunk design to keep the total width within DOT regulations but the ability for me to easily load and unload one boat when hunting alone is a factor keeping me from jumping right into that design.

Can you not simply get a longer tongue for Existing trailer if you already have a double of sufficient width?

Curt,

A double jet ski trailer would work if you extended the tongue of the trailer. I bought a single jet ski trailer for one of my boats and ended up extending the tongue to make it work. Haven't regretted that...

Depending on the width of the boats you may get away with a tandem jet ski trailer we found for the types of boats we use It would not work because of overall width so we went up which took lots of engineering to figure out how to make it work but was well worth the effort I will see if I can get a picture posted Paul Dombrosky might chime in as he had many years of experience using the trailer I am referring to

Roy, I?m not really sure what you mean. My current trailer is just big enough for my single bbsb.

Dani, the double jet ski trailer does seem like the simplest option and extending the tongue would easily cure the length issue as long as it was wide enough.

Justin, the boats both measure 4 feet exactly in width which is certainly pushing the width issue. I would certainly like to see pictures if you could come up with any. I also considered a set of bunks directly over top of the other and use the lower boat when going alone and lifting the top boat off when someone goes with me. That may get old in a hurry though...

Okay, was under impression you already had a double. Longer tongue,s can be purchased for jet ski double trailers if trailer width will fit your 2 boats

Here?s another option. This is the rig we use to haul 2 Roy 12 ft lowboats

Don, In that first picture with the boats next to each other, is that just a double jet ski trailer? That looks like the simplest option as long as my boats will fit.

Rich, I like that design a lot. That looks like the way to go.

Curt, look at Steve's; Readers Rigs Archive
All the Readers Rigs brought over from the old site.

The sneak boat heading, he has five pages of his good stuff.

Thanks for the tip Don. Some neat pictures over there!

Curt,

I have access to that trailer of Steves. I know his wife is trying to sell two boats as well as the trailer. She would likely not part with the trailer and have the boats left but I could probably get pictures of the trailer for you. But it is a double jet ski trailer with two bud miles sneak boats on it.

Dani,

That?s much appreciated but I don?t want you to go out of your way. After reading all the replies I think with a tongue extension and a bit of engineering I could make a jet ski trailer work for my boats without being too wide. I also really like that over under design though. I think at this point it?s just a matter of what kind of trailer I can find find first so I have time to fix it up before season gets here.
