  • Phoenix Trailer Issue with my 2016 Super Air Nautique 210 (Gel coat)



    Good Morning! This is my first post on Planet Nautique. I see a lot of great discussions out there! I purchased a 2016 Super Air Nautique 210 with a Phoenix Tandem Axle trailer. The boat has been awesome with tons of memories already. The purpose of this post is to see if anyone has had issues with their Phoenix trailer? I've had three gel coat issues already with my Nautique caused by exposed screw heads on the fenders. There is very little wiggle room (<2" total) with the 210 sitting on the trailer. The boat rides about 1" under the top of the fender. The dealer has tried to rectify the issue by trying to screw them in further, while also raising the boat a bit as it sits on the trailer, however to no avail. Has anyone else had an issue similar to this with their Phoenix Trailer? If so, what has your dealer done to fix it?

    I grew up with other Nautiques that I never noticed screw heads exposed...Would appreciate any insight here as I work with my dealer to try and fix this issue. Lastly, in doing my research online, it appears that Boatmate/Ramlin trailers allow the 210 to sit higher (above) the fenders. Thanks for your help!

    You need to back the trailer down half way down the ramp, drive the boat up, then back the trailer down all the way and finish driving the to boat on the trailer. This will keep you from missing the bunks or floating above the fenders. I have a phoenix trailer now and had a ramlin before...its not the trailer.

      I'd say if the boat can hit an exposed bolt head in any situation (even if you miss the alignment during loading) then it is a trailer issue. The inner surface of the fenders of my Ramlin trailer for my 196 has carpeted panels that have bolts that have countersunk heads so as to not come in contact with the hull. Shouldn't matter how sloppy one puts the boat on the trailer it should not hit bolt heads.

        I have a Super Sport on a 2013 Phoenix. Never had an issue with the fenders since they are heavily carpeted. I do have concerns about the prop and it's guard since the guide poles are mounted all the way at the back of the trailer allowing the boat to move sideways once it's all the way forward. If the poles were moved up 2ft to just behind the fenders it would keep the boat centered better IMHO. I wonder if this is the same issue you are having? I only use it once a year so it's not a big deal,just have to take my time loading. Also don't like the roller up front,I would rather it had crash pads.
