I decided a long time ago to build a trailer like Rick Hueschen's, and I was prepared to drop the $1200 or so to get the exact same one. However, I found a galvanized Hobie 16 trailer here in town on Craigslist and managed to get it for $220 bucks! It needs new tires, but they are cheap. I need an extra three feet added to the tongue to clear the bows when turning, but I got a quote from a welder here of $80 bucks to add on the extra length. Between that, the parts for the hull cradles, and the tires, I should have a telescoping trailer for less than five hundred bucks!

That's my mast sitting on top
