Braking Trailer

Having just bought a RIB with a braking trailer which, will be used to launch from the beach into the sea. I'm wondering that due to the fact that my place is only yards from the launch site and that only once a year will I be taking it onto public roads (home in the winter). Should I have the brakes removed to stop them seizing up and corroding in the salt ? What do you think ?

Buy it & Use it, then sell it and buy something bigger

As you rib is only 4.8m, I would be very tempted not to have the brakes. the RIBCRAFT 4.8m does not normally have a braked trailer.
Don't forget those bearings though.
