  • 254 project

    Hi, I'm new to the Mako family and excited to be part of it. I'm experiencing the first of the two happiest days of a boat owner....

    I've enjoyed reading many threads on CM and have learned a lot.

    That being said, I'm Looking to Purchase a Fastload from All County Trailer in Riviera Beach for a project 254.

    Trailer is a new 7000 Lb rated with Kodiak brakes, torsion axles, Aluminum I beam, wide frame, heavy duty crossmembers, aluminum boat guides, LED lights & Stainless steel hardware. I'm sure i miss quoted something so forgive me. 3970 + tax.

    Any thoughts or comments on the proper size, Dealer and/or MFG would be appreciated

    Welcome to CM and congratulations! The trailer sounds like a good buy, just make sure the bunks extend to the stern and stop right at it or no more then an inch or so. Sounds like a smaller custom shop which sometimes can make superior trailers to the mass produced ones. I would add forward keel bunks to guide the bow and do not use a roller or the crappy PVC bow guides. Hardware sounds nice - I would make sure the I beams are stout - Magictilt has gone cheap and reduced the size of their Ibeams so you really need to buy the next size up. Post up pics when you get it!

      Thanks Sailor,

      I upgraded to a 10,000 lb trailer. I was thinking I was cutting it close with the 7000 lb and an estimate of the boat being around 5800/6000 laden with fuel, tackle, Ice, water etc. Hopefully it will be ready next week and the journey begins....

        Hi,

        Quick question I can't seem to find an answer for. How come I cant see pictures others post & how do you post pictures.

        Thanks

          since Photobucket blocked all third party viewing on of pictures uploaded to their servers they effectively shut down the majority of pictures on most forums, unless each member pays $399 per year! Many people have moved to IMGUR to host pics. As for the old picturs, they have been saved pending a new forum upgrade.
