What size Tolman or GA will need that type of horsepower? Supposedly the largest of GA's can't use all of a 225! (Brian posted a video of a GA & a 225 hp running 47 mph and not at full throttle - any more throttle and it was porpoising a bit)

Kiwi Jon,

I gleaned from other posts that if you build a WB without a cabin you need to keep weight forward. Lyle's example was particularly helpful to me due to similarities in our WBs. IIRC, he has 20G plus batteries under the center console. I have a 12G tank just forward of station 6, and 28G starting at station 6 and going 4' aft. I have about 370# of motor on the transom and one battery (70#) back there as well. I keep most gear forward of station 6 when running the boat and trim seems good at all fuel loads with 3 people in the boat. If anything, the boat seems to be on the stern heavy side when I run it alone at lower fuel loads.

Mine is a jumbo.  I'm not sure on the model without looking. I called them, emailed them some dimensions an a couple pictures of the hull, and they responded with here is what you need and a fair price.  It is tandem axel, standard springs, disk brakes, and rollers on the front and bunks on the back.

A 200hp (489lbs) yamaha high power VS the yamaha 300hp (558lbs) Offshore
Very similar price for us to import to New Zealand.

Your Thoughts please

 Finally have Greenstick mounted on boat and tomorrow I'll stand it up. Major PIA as I changed the design from 6-7? yrs. ago when we ran it 2x and then changed it again 1/2 way thru this install by offsetting it 18" from the centerline. Going to be really interesting doing the water-test next week to check the 'balance' and finalize the dropper lure lengths. Thinking we'll get away with it as we have the o/b offset 12" the other side and we will keep the 28g extra fuel-tank under the driver seat full till we finish fishing. That's besides the #500 of ice we keep on the fishdeck to act as ballast. Approaching this carefully as several small boats have been flipped with Greensticks and turning too fast and there have been some injuries . Keeping option open of eventually replacing the top section of the alum. stick with a carbon-fiber windsurfer mast if the bend isn't right or we crumple that section. Base is stayed to the back of the pilothouse and base plate which helps steady it as we tilt it up and then set the guy-wiries forwd. and to the sides. Not sure we can lower/raise it in a seaway but we'll see. Just ordered a 5-line Canyon Squid Bird spread ( http://reeldraggintackle.com/collections/trolling-spreads-for-tuna-fish/products/canyon-spread-5-line-squid-bird-spread  ) to compliment the stick and hopefully get multiple hookups.  B & B

DaveW,   I got my trailer from roadrunner and they were great.  Configured and built the trailer to fit the boat at a stock trailer price.   Boat still hasn't hit the trailer yet (hopefully sooner rather than later), but I like what I see at this point.   The way this trailer is I'm figuring the bottom of the Keel will be 22" off the ground.  Hope I haven't miss-figured on this much, as I built my radar tower to give me 3" clearance into my shop once it's on the trailer.

Thanks for that reference dimension. 22" would work for me. I like Road Runner a lot. When I bought the one for my Standard I got the boat show special price in January - 900 bucks brand new . No brakes on that one though. I expect to pay more this time.  What base model Road Runner did you get? I can't remember if you're building a Jumbo or a Widebody? If dimensions get tight you can always deflate the tires,  or upgrade to heavy duty tires on smaller diameter wheels.
