Removable tongue??

Does anyone have a removable tongue on their trailer? I am looking to put my boat in the garage. The boat will fit, but the trailer will not without cutting the front part off. Anyone had it done?

I once had a trailer shop install a receiver hitch joint in the tounge of a boat trailer. It worked great.

Mine would not fit in my garage without the break-tongue.

My PS190 used to fit almost exactly like TMCNo1's

Wow... that is a beautiful tongue (never thought I'd say that to another dude )

I love the carpeted jack stand with the "Mastercraft" sticker on it so that it doesn't accidentally used on the tow vehicle (like that's a possiblilty).

So close to the freezer and washer/dryer, I have to take the platform off and put it in the boat during the winter with the OH door closed, when the weight is off the springs and tongue. In summer I just roll it forward into the garage a couple feet, when the OH door is open except when it's extremely hot.
