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.
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

trailer eases wear and tear on boats and bodies.
