Plenty of trailer there for a Malahini.

So, I came to the point of having my trailer done and ready to sit my boat on it. I tend to over build things in my engineering, but I was so afraid of dropping it, so I built a couple of brackets that set the pivot point up 8" to help balance it. I think if I went up two more inches it would have been perfect.
Of course, as some of you know, sitting it on the trailer makes it a bit to high to easily work on the inside. So, I am going to build a cradle and sit it down on that for now. I'm also fabricating a couple of permanent stainless lift points so I can lift it on and off the trailer and cradle anytime, now and in the future.

Outside for the first time, so I can clean up the floor and see it again for the first time in 10 months. M y wife was a great help in raising and flipping it, as well as helping to clean up the mess under it to get it ready to bring the trailer in under it. I hope to get back to building on it again soon. Gotta have it done by spring. :)

Nice flip. That makes three or four malahinis that have flipped recently. I like your brackets. I assume the holes on the transom will go away when you cut out for the motor well?

Thanks Bryan and yes, the holes will be filled in, but they will be also be covered by a stainless plate.

Yup lots of malahinis getting built right now. Yours looks great. You could take the wheels off your trailer to help lower it down.
