I'm taking my extended family on the San Juan (SI to MH) this summer. We will need to transport five 15' rental oar rigs about two hours to the put in. The question is how many rafts is too many to stack on a trailer? I figured someone probably has a spectacular story about learning the hard way...
- We are putting in at Sand Island and have a reservation to camp there the night before launch so we'll have time to futz around with rigging
- I could probably get two trailers so don't need a super stack of 5
- We could stack the top 3 or 4 rafts unloaded so we don't need a forklift to get them up on the stack
- We are going to self shuttle one vehicle to Mexican Hat so we aren't concerned about minimizing how many vehicles we take to save on shuttle costs
