Swing tongue question

5 posts in this topic

I have a 3500lb Shorelandr trailer with 3X5 tongue that I would like to turn into a swing model so it will fit into my garage easier.

My question;

Is there anybody other than Shorelandr that makes a conversion or a replacement tongue? I have looked all over and all I can find are 3X3 and 3X4 models.

Check with Erickson Marine down towards Hastings, the guy that invented the idea works there or use to. Also 61 Marine sales across the road installed mine on the same size tounge. HTB

I've done all kinds of searching and am looking for a price for a 3X5. Shorelandr seems to be the only place I can find one that size. I will probably get the factory piece but I'm looking to see what an aftermarket price is so I know how bad I'm getting screwed. The 3X3 and 3X4 tongues are all in the $150 range.

I had a local welding shop convert mine. I am in Victoria so probably futher than you want to go from WBL. This guy cut the tongue and welded a couple pieces in place and I now have a nice swing tongue with no bolts etc. I think it cost around $75 and as I said it is all welded. I too looked at the conversion kits for around $150 but decided to stop in and ask. To my surprise it said it was very easy and would take an hour or so. I couldn't be happier with it.

      I love these fish! The attitude is always fun and they taste great. The strip of y bones can be cut right out with a little effort.    I know where I'll be early in the morning May 13th with topwaters and swimbaits!

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.
