  Threaded pipe flanges

Redmond, I've gotten a lot of trailering
ideas from your posts for years. Thanks for the help. I would caution that threaded galvanized pipe is prone to breakage due to its reduced diameter and exposure. The taller you make the wooden supports like the ones in the photos, the more susceptible they are to movement (sway) over time, too. Yours would last a long time though, as low as they are to the trailer bed. Had a close call with half a dozen boats in a double tiered stack once. I've gone to a fabricator since then. My design and his welding have made every aspect of trailering a breeze. My .02
