Yes and they have flushing systems attached to them and new bearings every year - although it would probably help if I got round to fitting the bearing savers I have on the shelf!

Well made it up and tried it on Sunday
Worked well needed the trolley a little deeper to get the rib on and a couple of other mods including a bracing bar for the winch post, but getting there. I have got a wireless remote(two controllers for when the first gets wet ) so you can control it while checking how the boat is going o
The winch also slides off so I can put it in the car when i'm on the water

Looks good , but the towing vehicle there may be a problem on a steep slip .
