Re: Trailer for Skerry

The smaller the wheel/tire, (like 8"), the higher the rpm for any given speed... And that equates to more maintenance and more frequent breakdowns.
On Cape Cod, (where boats are more common than colds), we see broken trailers on the side of the road ALL the time... And they almost always have those tiny wheels.
Blowing a precious day off with a trailer breakdown is worse than getting a root canal!
Save your pennies. (Sell a pint of blood, sell your cat, remortgage your house, drink cheap beer, etc.) But no matter what you do, buy a quality trailer.
The CLC trailer (http://www.clcboats.com/transport.php/cart_id=/) looks like a winner to me.
