Why does nearly every boat I see from Florida have a galvanized single axle trailer with the boat hanging way off the back with no prop guard and bunks that aren't carpeted all the way around? I see similar trailers on everything from older Nautique direct drives to newer Malibu vdrives.
I ask since I'm in the market for a boat and although Florida would be a good 20+ hour drive I have a friend down there outside of Orlando so wouldn't mind making a mini vacation out of picking up a boat from down there. I just don't like the look of most of those trailers I see. I don't like the boat hanging off the back, don't like the lack of a prop guard, and prefer a dual axle. Curious as to why so many have that style of trailer.
