I do ,,,, its how the axle is attached to the subframe I am interested in, as well as whether the u bolts to the subframe just clamp between the bottom rail and a plate or if they go through a subframe as I recollect seeing somewhere. It wasn't the u bolts that failed, it was the 2 12mm bolts holding the axle to the subframe that did
Thanks anyway

I have alway been led to believe and followed the idea you need the last rollers right back supporting the transom, otherwise this can lead to a hook developing at the back of the hull with all the weight of the outboard hanging off it for extended periods,

We had todo just this the other day, with a car jack its not too difficult, however obviously if you can swap it out when the boats in the water even better.

I was actually thinking about this yesterday. Making a basic saddle for my jack to take the weight and move the arm back.

Hi Steve,
I've finally taken some pictures of my Ballistic on its trailer,
Any ideas how to get them attached to this tread?
Failing that, i could email them to you! Mike

Thanks Mike. I've sent a PM

I looked at this last time I was down at the boat, and I need to take the boat off to remove the arm and re fit, but this is a job for early in the season so the photos would be of interest. Steve
