I just spent the day at my doctors, he has a boat that he wants in his back yard, water access only, steep grad.
Looked on line for a unit around 2000 without winch.
But thought I would look for a better way, extra trailer, dull wheels much more then needed coast 400 needs paint, has new tires.

Winch four hundred 50 dollars now it time to install.

In the old days you could just lay some old rail track on the beach and you were in business, not to day unless you happen to be an oil company and above the law, the nab-ours will complain.

Have fun

16.FT Tomboy GVW

Just looking at your boat, the motor is larger but the trailer has a GVW, this tell you the max weight the trailer will bear under load, which covers the trailer plus the boat and all the junk one may throw in it, gas, wet boat, engine extra.

If your not sure do a drive by to a government scale they will do it normally for nothing?

Hope that helps
