I bought a covered utility trailer from the guy down the road to be used specifically as a boating
utility trailer. It is about 4 feet wide by 4 high by 6 deep. Gross weight for both the trailer and tow vehicle is 2000 pounds.
I envision it mostly as a tool shed holding heavy duty maintenence stuff such as sanders and grinders, maybe a bench vice - the kind of stuff you would want at the boat on a heavy duty work detail weekend, but not necessarily want IN the boat and be sailing around with, for weight, storage
and theft risk reasons.
Of course theft risk is a complicated issue. When at the boat over night does one then have to unload the tool trailer onto the boat?
Another usage would be to take high value items off the boat (electronics and sails
? ) to mitigate theft issues when away from the boat.
Has anyone else developed a similar trailer or otherwise have suggestions as to how to productively outfit and use one?
As I don't yet have a boat, I need some boat related projects to keep me going through the winter.
