Designed specifically for towing Cornish Pilot Gig Boats, the GT900 Pilot Gig Boat Trailer is robust and reliable, and designed from a user’s perspective. The single piece main frame is fabricated and fully welded in steel, and then hot-dipped galvanised as one complete piece for the ultimate structural integrity and corrosion resistance.
Available as standard in a single axle configuration, for ease of movement when unhitched, this comes with 195/55 R13 wheels for easy travel across beaches when launching, and also for smooth towing along roads. The Jockey wheel fitted is puncture proof and extra wide, again for easy launching and movement. Mudguards are integrated into the frame of the machine from 2mm galvanised steel, and fully enclose the inside wheel arch to reduce mud and water spraying onto the boat.
The one-piece construction is designed to significantly reduce trailer flex, both laden an unladen, which reduces the potential for boat damage, as well as improving stability when towing. The bow of the boat is aligned right over the draw bar to reduce towing length and improve balance, reducing bouncing.
4 fixed keel supports along the centre of the boat and 4 variable height supports ensure the boat is well supported during transit. Side supports are angled and located such that when in the loading position (supports down) the keel supports do not drag the ground and are protected within the framework of the trailer itself.
