If you build a 14 foot double ender, you will need a trailer. This is not only for your ease of loading and unloading, but to lessen the wear and tear on your boat. There are many trailer styles that will transport your boat. A regular boat trailer will work, but I prefer to transport the boat while it is sitting on its runners. A simple trailer with a bed at least 4 feet by 8 feet is sufficient. I built a 4íx8í metal frame on a utility trailer and added a roller and winch for less than $100, which included the cost of the trailer.

One of the best alternatives Iíve seen is a 16í flat bed utility trailer. These trailers sit low to the ground and have room to carry several bags of decoys. These trailers are pricey at $750-$1000, but have other uses as well. A custom built trailer Iíve seen carries the boats in a webbing sling. One of my friendís trailer uses the sling and stacks four boats each in their own sling. The trouble with this trailer is that you have to be a giant to load the top boat. I can carry two boats on my trailer. This is accomplished by building a lid for the bottom boat that will support the weight of the top boat. The lid also has stops to keep the runners of the top boat from sliding off to the side.

If you build a boat you need a trailer.
