Thanks Dan, there's a few more pics of the trailer here:T/T Martini II - New SIB

Don't be too envious, it was an absolute nightmare to build and still cost me a small fortune

That's a first for me, never seen a wooden RIB trailer before - fantastic. Do you have any problems with it getting bouyant when launching/recovering?

It does float a little, but you get used to it.
Wooden trailers are very common around here.

Nice rig. Looks a little tow ball heavy? Do you have console tanks full of petrol? With that boat/engine weight I'd suspect with a single axle you're on the greyer side of White with regards max weight limit.

Tank is empty and the ground is very uneven in that shot. Surprisingly the boat is only about a ton. Drawbar is very long though.
