Looks like a home build. Probably wanted to run it some before buying a trailer. My buddy said he’s seen him a few times launching and he dunks the trailer just like it was made for it! Bwahaha
Yeah I grew up poor and we had a wooden hay trailer for our flat bottom boat but we caught a lot of fish and were happy as could be! I still have the boat and refreshed it a few years ago.

I’ve seen a few flat bottom boats launched from trailers like this in the local bayou. Never in salt though.

I converted a 16’ utility trailer to haul two SoloSkiffs to the Keys with lockable storage below them in 2018. No need to dunk it. Quickie job with free scrap metal, but it got us there and back. I’ve used it since in Matagorda. I can’t post photographs, but Mac has a pic of it. Maybe he’ll post it here.
