Whelp... there goes my plans haha... I had my heart set on a g2 250ho. Maybe I will still get one, although them discontinuing them makes me think that there might be problems getting it serviced or getting parts in the future. Dang.

Thank you Brian! Even if itís not perfect this boat is just to make due til I build what I want.....

Itís an old pursuit with a new engine and a nice trailer and good Raymarine bottom machine I picked up the whole package for $12,500 so I really canít complain! We just like to bust snapper and stuff out to 30 miles or son the GOM. Gonna order my GA plans tonight. Still thinking the kodiak.

Right on!  Most of the plans sales lately have been for the Kodiak ... you're in good company :D

It's pinkish ... I'm voting for Douglas Fir.  Either way, it'll be great for your purposes.

Thanks Brian - that's probably what I'll end up doing.  It'll handle the beam, but getting to the correct length is a bit of a stretch (no pun intended).  The more I think about it, it'd make more sense to get a trailer intended for that length of boat.  I appreciate the reply.

Glad to hear it ... you'll feel better about that decision in the long run, and the cost is a small percentage of the boat project.

With a 28-footer, you could end up someday loading it to over 6000# total displacement.  Kent Cannon loads his 29-footer to over 8000#.  Just something to keep in mind when you pick trailers.  Other stuff: I like double-axle trailers that have separate suspension for each axle.  This type really smooths out bad pothole dirt roads and such that you run into around boating areas and boat ramps.  One wheel will be on the road surface and helping to 'carry' the other wheel over the hole ... versus dropping each wheel in the hole one at a time.
