Just picked-up my new trailer last week and honestly can't stop drooling! Wanted to post some pictures for everyone. The folks at Boatmate did an absolute awesome job.

whoa, baby! not a bad looking boat either. congrats and i hope you enjoy it for years to come. i used to have an 05 xstar and the tower you have will accomodate a fusion i-series board rack through the holes that are on the rear tower legs. allows you to carry 8 instead of only 4 boards and it looks as close to factory as possible with the additional boards out of the drivers view.

Wow, I just reviewed their website. What a nice trailer! Makes me want a tandem axle to go under the '89 with all the bling! And, they are in Maryville, TN too.

How much more or less expensive than a factory MC trailer?

Man, that is TIGHT... one of those things that makes a guy pull the boat around just to show it off. Nicest I have seen.

I didn't price out from Mastercraft, but know they are very proud of their trailers. If you are intersted in a trailer or need a trailer you will want to talk to Boatmate.

Just saw the runway lights at night and it looks great btw!

After backing a tandem into a tight spot, you'd think differently. The extra set of wheels certainly does look sharp but unless you have a boat heavy enough to require the two axles I'd say you are better off sticking with the single.....tight turns are a bugger with an extra tires scrubbing the ground.

Beautiful trailer to go with an awesome boat! Just curious as to why you didn't have them put a boat buddy on there?

Had the boat buddy on the last trailer and while it may be less hastle to get on and up the ramp it was virtually impossible from keeing the thing from marking-up the bottom of the boat at times. Could just be the ramp I use or a variety of factors...who knows. Figured I would try out the traditional and see if I liked it better.

if so its my ramp too then... marks mine up but i don't mind too bad since the bottom of my hull and boat buddy are similar colors

Cool looking trailer. Get a pic at night to show off those LED's on the top of the rails.

Hey RWB, don't think twice about the extra axle being a problem. I move mine around with no trouble at all, and mine is still in the ugly duckling stage. And even if it did take a little longer to get into position, it would just give all the spectators a few more seconds to drool over that great looking trailer.

My last two trailers tandem tailers, and don't think I'd go back to a single. The only time they suck is if you're trying to move them by hand. To me, they seem to ride better and pull better.

RWB, have you had this trailer in use yet? I was wondering how the bow stop worked out for you. Certainly won't leave any marks - just wondering how well you line up with it while going back on the traiiler.

I have only towed with it at this point since it's been so cold lately. Once I'm able to launch a time or two I'll let you know, I'm thinking it will be just fine and avoid the marks on my black gelcoat.

Someone on here suggested to spray Armor All on the boat buddy before loading the boat.This will eliminate almost all the marks.
I tried it and it worked.
Thank you whoever you are.

Finally got an opportunity to launch and load a couple times. The Boatmate trailer works great. Only issue is I have already replaced the roller with a BoatMate as it is next to impossible to load without. When you throttle up and then let off the boat would drop back down right away making it impossible to hook. I'll live with wiping off the boatmate marks for the quick throttle up and immediate lock and pull away!

I assume your referring to the Boat Buddy? Carpet it and the marking will stop as long as you keep spray wax on the carpet and the bow area waxed.

Thanks for the info...I think you mentioned that earlier, but I forgot to try that. Looks like I got another minor project before the weekend!

I can't really tell by your pictures, but does your boat have the long bow eye required for use with the Boat Buddy? If it does, your good to go, if not you'll need to buy one and will have to switch it out.
Get the Boat Buddy II for use with the big 1/2" bow eye, like shown here, http://kodiaktrailer.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=1&osCsid=5eef2b6660e36e08707cb7d7cde13b9f

Not sure which I have actually...I belive it's the Boat Buddy II. Owen at Boatmate gave it to me as we both were not sure how the roller would do and he said he would switch it out if the roller did not work. All I know is it works great!

Ok, you've already got one and it's installed, so you have the long bow eye if it works....................................nevermind !
