I dont think i'm ready for the two trailers... plus I dont think I can tow through CA like that. Nice set up.

JFresh, I bought an 18" trailer hitch extender and took it to a welding shop to have brackets for bunks welded on.

Here is the hitch extension I bought: http://www.amazon.com/CURT-MFG-Curt-.../dp/B004YS***8

Here is the photo that sparked my idea:

Yeah. And if it is a 2009 or newer Superjet, I want it!

I like that set-up but I think when you do this, the towing capacity is greatly reduced....making it impossible to pull the boat. Am I off base?

The extension says that the it reduces the hitch capacity by 50%.

My ProStar 197 is still under/close to those specs. That said, I have never used the extension for over a 30 mile drive from storage to the river. I am contemplating taking the stand-up with the boat and RV on our vacation this summer, but the idea really scares me.

Skis use inlet water in the wet exhaust, and can flood the cylinders.

Nice B1 Ryan! Still one of my favorite toys that I miss.

I assume you don't have a pickup to put the ski in.
I've seen guys extend the boat trailer tongue long enough to put 2 standups in front of the boat, one on each side of the tongue. I would imagine the tongue would have to be 4-5 feet longer than stock. Might be tricky to do but well worth it. Just think, you could take 2 standups with you!

I wouldn't put the ski on the platform as is even for travel down the lake, not strong enough. You would have to use some kind of outboard motor bracket to help support the 2 existing platform brackets, like maybe something from Gil Marine.
