A friend of mine gave me this utility trailer as he was finished w it.
Not the least bit marine but like in the old drag racing days "run what ya brung".

I show it w the 12' outboard boat/row boat I recently acquired. I plan on using it w other small boats too. Canoes, kayaks ect.

One of my canoes is 18' so I lengthened the tongue quite a bit. So rather than having a long car towing a little trailer I'll have a short car towing a long (sorta) trailer. Much easier to back too.

The aft extension is to facilitate loading and launching w the trailer quite far from the water's edge. Doing is probably more difficult than thinking about though.

I took one leaf out of the springs as I never carry a big load w it. Should be much less shaking on the road.

Need to finish the wiring (easy) and fit roller bunks. Thinking of very small tires inflated minimally.
