Trailer is not long enough!

The trailer has cantalevered bunks. I like a Full length trailer frame.

But the worse part is the bunks do not go all the way to the transom. This can create a "Hook" in the hull and you end up with a ill handling boat.

As I've many times.....I haven't see to many boat trailers that could not use some adjusting....But in this case the trailer is just To Small.

I thought that the trailer looked small. I will need to address that with the current owner.

The bunks are short because the MA has integrated trim tabs. The trim tabs are actually on the bottom of the hull and longer bunks would make contact with the trim tabs. However, after changing my mind for the 50th time, I've decided to go with the Blackjack. Through some research I learned that the 21 ft. Mavericks are notorious for stringer failures. I will be picking up the Blackjack tomorrow.

You won't be disappointed in the Blackjack... That, an old 23' kenner, 22' pathfinder are my dream bay boats
