      Hi folks.
      Just had a 240 come into my world. She's in a marina and needs to get out before the end of February. I'm hoping for any advice on trailers, cradles on dry or any other thoughts regarding getting this boat from the marina 100kms away to my house. What do you think about modifying a powerboat trailer? What about using a single axel macgregor 26' trailer.

      Thanks already for the amount of info on this group.

        The 240 is a shoal draught boat and so the cradle is not tall and would be about 6 feet wide by 12 feet long.  There needs to be a U-Channel for the keel to slide into.  Cradles for a boat this size can be made of welded 2x2 inch square steel tubing.. here is a pics of typical cradle... Instead of flat plank the 240 should have a trough made of u-channel in the center

        There was a site on the internet that did have the dimensions and plans for making a cradle for the Buccaneer ,  you just need to search to find it , was made out of wood ,  and they used a dual axle car trailer for the cradle and boat to sit on , it worked well for them . this may help you,    Dr. Robert Trevino

          Hi Garfield, congratz on your 240. I suggest you check with EZ Loader dealers or any used trailer website. You'll need tandem axel EZ trailer for sure. My 270 came with a tnadem axel EZ Loader as standard equip. with the boat. With a good trailer it's an easy haul. My 270 runs around 6K lbs. and I pull it with a Town&Country about 30 miles to and from my winter storage site. Congratz again and I'm sure a good trailer will turn up with a little bit of looking.
