So it does to look like i need a hefty 3500kg trailer for my fat bottomed girl that can support her properly.
I am guessing this does to mean a specialised trailer, or at least one that does to have adjustable jack stands to support it.

The idea is to be to marina berth her in summer and to keep her on to a trailer on to a driveway in the winter instead of to be on to the hardstand.
I figure the trailer would go to pay for itself within 3-6 yrs in doing so. The boat can then to be either be lifted or trailered out/in the water.

Where do people recommend ti go to for to get trailers that can to take sailboats etc?
Or how to people suggest modifying?
Is it as simple as to clamp on jack stands?!

Pics of other CI22s so you can to get an idea of her keel config

What does the manufacturer of the boat use to transport them ? You see bigger sailing vessels trailered and given the amount of yachts around the UK that all got to the water some how, I would of thought you shouldn't have a problem finding something. Looks like a heavy outfit to tow once you include the weight of the trailer. https://improvesailing.com/questions/largest-trailer-sailboat

They did to all get delivered by sea from Jersey Jon, it to be part of their charm.
The boat does to weight 2.5ton so yes, it is a chunk. New car needed to tow or to pay a certain person to deliver.

Not as heavy as I thought. As you know most boats we use here have deep v hulls and some trailer their boats that are over 30ft. A quick walk around our local boat ramp car parks would soon give you an idea on how a normal trailer could be setup for that boat.

In this image you can see that the skids can be brought closer to the centre rollers of the trailer and also adjusted in height, the same would go for fully roller trailer. Like most boat trailers, the design is set so that the keel (strongest part of any hull) is supported on the centre rollers and the skids are mostly side supports, the load being taken central. Image is just a guide.

Thanks for that advice Jon.
yes i do to have some spindle like beaching legs like those into the picture that manage to keep her upright, and indeed it would to be just for support and to stop sideways motion. I to have to find something that can to move up and down to find the right support though. The keel to be 1.5ft deeper than the hull itself.
I to know they do to trailer fin keel sail boats and even single keel boats around, but to fail to find anything that does to look up to the job.
I may to have to fabricobble to get it right, but to be an expensive mistake to make if i do to.

Have you tried speaking to a trailer company ? custom made would be the easiest and then it’s up to them to get it set up right.

sbs trailers are very good but expensive
Indespension
Extreme trailers are two other manufacturers

trying to find one second hand is asking for trouble

IMO You need a bunk trailer with optional preferred keel rollers. Just about all those type of trailers need to be tailored to the boat so buy any suitable base and modify with the correct parts from a manufacturer,


Or it may work out more expedient buying boat and trailer and selling boat on

you would need to add some blocks to get her level then id drill and use a threaded bar so attach them to the trailer its the cheapest way around spend fortune on purpose built trailer other option being sell her and get a trailer boat but you dont want to do that mate

What about Dry Stacking. No maintenance no anti-foul,no speed reduction as season progresses. You can have a cheaper rate if you don't want 12 month launching.
I did to look into this, but no dry stacks into the area unfortunately.
If i to have her next to the house then i can to go to town onto the refit i would like to do easily at my leisure and to do charter fishing into the winter months instead.

Thanks Sid. There to be tons of drystacks here into solent area, the issue is i to be looking to put the boat into the water around north wales in the boating season and spend 1-3nights there each time i to use the boat. This is nicer into a hotel, but easier and cheaper onto the boat if it to also be into the water at the same time.
The nearest drystack i did to find when i did look is cardiff area, which is too far.
I did to be surprised at just how little marina opportunities there are up that way given how nice for boating it is. Spoilt here into the solent but sick of it.

North Wales has Europe's finest cruising grounds bar none. We have few marina's in an effort to hold the English back. Let them all swill in their own cesspools.

North wales?! 😮😮😮😮

There is a good dry stack in Neyland. Also you’ve got good trot moorings up the haven that are very reasonable. Milford marina is very reasonable and you can even live aboard 12 months of the year….
Great fishing and cruising :)

Nothing is set into stone yet but the better fishing is to be the idea.
I do to need a marina or pontoon to walk onto and off. I am too ill to play with moorings and dragging dinghies upto the beach now.
