One thing that makes a boat trailer more useful for different boats is to have a longer drawbar than normal on the trailer. So if you are having a trailer made – adding a foot or two to the drawbar may make it useful for bigger boats too.
The frame trailer picture right is for the flat bottomed Goat Island Skiff that has two longitudinal runners on the bottom of the boat.
If you are using a cross bar across the top of the top boat I would put holes in the ends of that for the tie down too. I would normally put plywood over the trailer frame before adding the bearers that support the boat to reduce the risk of stone chipping the hull.
Because of its size (not weight) the GIS is much more easily handled on a low trailer, which facilitates one person loading and unloading.
I originally used a box trailer, but the height was problematic and made handling a job for two fit and strong people. The rear bunks are fixed so that the hull skids fit between them, so the boat is self-centering when loading.
