It floats when you try to launch your boat?

Well first off that big of a boat would require 2 more axles to be safe. I dont see any taillights or clearance lights so that poses another problem when towing on the local roads. Fenders! yes fenders to keep water spray off the boat and also to prevent other vehicles getting hit by any spun up rocks or water. 50 State federal law ya know! Also not sure that a wooden framed trailer is DOT approved... Gonna have to look that one up, because the British auto manufacturer Morgan still uses wood to this day in it's chassis and they are perfectly street legal.

You said there was something ODD about it, so we were trying to guess the odd aspect.

Well they say the cost of the trailer should be in proportion with the value of the boat...
