2009 24Ve with 24Ve-specific trailer.
There is a spot that would be convenient to mount the thruhull intakes for my ballast system. Unfortunately, the main trailer bunks are right on the edge of this location. Seems to me it would be better to optimize for the boat at the expense of the trailer, as long it doesn't compromise the trailer.
The main (rear) bunks on this trailer are 2x6's that are supported every couple of feet by metal struts. I'm thinking about cutting out, say, 6-8 inches roughly in the middle of the bunk's length. I could add a galvanized crossbrace below the bunk to restore the mechanical integrity.
This would essentially convert the trailer from a four bunk system to a six bunk system, and slightly increase the hull area that is not supported.
Has anyone ever done this? Pros and cons? Terrible idea because...?
