Stacer alloy trailers

Hi i just bought a new stacer boat with a stacer alloy trailer. How far should my boat be sitting from the plastic wheel shields? With my boat i can just clear my pinkie is this normal ?

Also when towing a trailer is it normal to hear noises and see the trailer vibrate?

Also with brand new boats is it normal for the boat to go back to the dealer to get the rollers adjusted ?

Also with live bait tanks when you pull the holes where the water comes out should there be heap of water comming out. I got told this is due to the boat been washed or my bait tank was turned out ? when i say water i mean the 2 holes where you drain the water out after us. Bungs?

My boat is a stacer nomad 4.79 right centre console.

Sorry about the question but this is my 1st boat and i am having a little drama with it and dont know it the dealer is pulling my leg or not

Appreciate as much feed back as possible

well ive had a few trailer boats and never had trailer vibration problems my guess could be wheel balance problem ,,mind u ive always had gal trailers .. as for the rollers 1hr of ur time and a standard car jack and u will find the sweet spot for setting up ur trailer rollers ... for the heights off the wheel guards id be keeping the boat as low as possible 2-5 inches a boat to high on a trailer is unstable and unsafe to tow ..........

Boat should sit as low as practicable on the trailer without touching the guards obviously, as the lower it is, the easier it is to get into the water. Almost all of the weight of the boat should be on the centre rollers with the bilge strakes if you have them or the side rollers only keeping the boat balanced from tilting on the keel. My alloy will only sit on centre rollers and 1 side of the strakes at a time till firmed down with straps.

Trailer noise and vibration sounds like a wheel balance issue. Make sure boat is whinched hard up to stem post and see if that reduces the vibration. Bust most probably a wheel issue.

Shouldnt have any water come out of the bungs unless it got in there either over the sides, or through live well if the drain plug is plumbed to empty into the bilge. For that one you will just have to put water in places and see where it drains out to.

Give me a hoy one weekday you have free and will meet you at a ramp to have a look and then head out for a fish.

I to have a stacer boat and trailer, the clearence between the gaurd and boat about 20mm. The vibaration from your trailer might be your trailer wheels not tight enough on

axle. Jack up your trailer on one side use choke on the other side, and see if there is a wobble. If there is a wobble pull the spilt pin out and tighten the nut up a little more. There should be a little movement and the tyre free wheel.

the chimes of a boat, i like to be around an inch, just enough to get ya toes under to climb into the boat. my trailer makes no noises at all only when hitting a pot hole or similar. forget the dealers for setting up your trailer, i think sometimes they have less of an idea then the owners of the boat. see if you can drag your boat around to somebody's place or ask ppl nicely to maybe give you a hand setting up your trailer, as i beleive the front of the boat should be raised, or higher than the back of the boat, when on the trailer. your live bait tank question ! did you fill it up? i imagine you did, or it wouldn't have water in it, but if it's getting into the hull, that would be a concern.

anyone of you guys want to help me out with my boat? I am quiet new to this boating thing. I am over at forest lake and i would swing some $$ someone way if they could lend me a hand. I am sick of going back to the boat shop and getting stuffed around. I dunt think my rollers are staight or balanced out.

OR if yous guys can recommend me a good boat maintanece place it would be awsome. I have a 60 4 stroke yammaha and i wouldnt mind finding a place that specialises in both yammaha and stacer boats.

I can be contacted on 0433 213 903 If anyone can point me in right direction or give me a hand.
