The Megabyte Sailboat - testimonial by Dr. Paul Gingras

2001 Load of the year!


Our new dealers, Marc Peers and Krystztof Machnowski, from Edmonton, Alberta, leave the shop with 8 Megabytes and 4 Bytes. We designed this custom trailer especially for them and had it built as a tandem axle, dip galvanized, welded steel structure with hydraulic brakes. It will take 8 Megabytes or 8 29ers plus up to 6 Bytes. It is max. width 8'6: and built like a BSH!






If you have a special trailer problem, opportunity or request, please let us quote you. The trailer pictured together with all the hydraulics and electrical hook up and connections was approx. US $5,000, depending on what conversion rate you use!
