Introducing the 'lightweight' trailer. Two thirds of the way through the build I finally accepted the canoe was not going to be a car top model (it had grown too heavy!). We designed a trailer and went to a local agricultural engineer for the chasis to be welded up. A fine trailer it is, but the theme of heavy has continued with this element of the project. So trailer replaces roof rack and tractor may now be added to the canoe accessory list.
