Then continued on to Palmetto FL to pick up my first S30. I had already pre-fabbed a few special fixtures for the trailer to convert it for the S30 transport. Chris Ferrante (previous owner)had the basic hull configuration all planned out and I used his ideas. It's pretty simple, first both hulls are raised 24" off the trailer bed, with one hull flipped and reversed. Loading was very easy, we used a crane to lift the hulls onto the trailer. The 30 actually towed easier than the 27 had on the way down because it had less frontal area protruding above the truck thus less wind resistance.
The trip home was uneventful,with lots of people asking either "what is that!?" or "how many boats do you have there, one or two?" Unloading was quite easy, just picked the hulls up with straps & my payloader, then rolled the inverted hull upright on foam blocks.
Trailer & loaded S30 were only 8"6" wide thus legal without permits. Trailer used was a 34ft tri-axle Loadmaster. Pictures are in Port 2015, any questions just ask. Now the fun part, I plan to add either wave-piercing or plumb bows,30" stern extensions, 44ft mast and anything else I can think of.....
