I remember seeing someone's trailer (I think it was for a 21) with sliding arms that allowed for launch and retrieval while assembled. Anyone know where I could find that? Thanks!

I have a trailer of this type. What is your email address? I'm modifying it this weekend, so I'll send you the pics and information after I finish if that works for you. 

Yes, I also have one...

Thanks a lot, too, Jeff. My Google-fu must have been weak today :)

That's a great design. How easy is to slide the hulls?

Thanks for posting this, Bo. I will continue to follow this thread with great interest. Back in the 90's, I modified a flat bed trailer to carry my Tiki 21 on. It worked but required assistance for unloading, assembly and launching. A collapsing version would have been much better. My Tiki 21 is in Africa and I am back in Canada now, and I am seriously considering building a Mana 24 when that kit becomes available. Ease of assembling and launching has been one of my concerns before committing myself to the build - the trailer that Rick Hueschen built looks like it solves the problem.

It's REALLY Easy...  especially for 2 people.  Before the boat goes on the trailer, I grease the 3 spots where the metal rides on the wooden bearings and it's very easy...
