I assume in Sarasota, you are using your boat in salt water quite regularly. If this is the case, I wouldn't buy the Mastercraft trailer. Although the trailers look great and last forever if used only infresh water, they won't hold up in salt water as they are a tubed steel design which dosen't allow the water to drain. This will cause the trailer to rust from the inside out.
2 cents worth of free advice...if you put your boat in salt regularly, buy a used aluminum trailer with nice big bunks and call it a day. The trailer will never rust and can be easily be modified to accomodate your boat. I have seen used aluminum trailers advertised here in Fl for $400-$800 dollars.
