This is his current project. I've tried to tell him, but he's convinced it'll be a viable tender.

Reckon it'd make it to France?
Might have more chance than Jeepster!

Perhaps YOU should go back and read all the patronising and insulting comments thrown my way, even AFTER I proved Simon did not have a clue what he was talking about, because his MITcalc model was all wrong and did not reflect the actual loadings on my trailer, as my MITcalc model did.
It doesn't take MITcalc to see that thing is under engineered! The results from the calcs are only as good as the data put in. Use your common sense.

I can imagine how you might feel having been bombarded with these replies, but people were trying to be helpful in the first place. It was only when you blatantly refused to accept anybody else's view point and claimed you knew you were 100% right, when people started to loose paitence with you. There is a certain etiquette to communicating and putting your point across over a forum, and accusing people of being stupid isn't it.

My trailer uses exectly the same materials and has the same capacity as the Indespension Roller Coaster 1.3HE...If its good enough for them, its good enough for me!
Your longitudinals are substantially longer in relation to your overall trailer length than Indespension's are. I can only imagine on that basis that your swing beams are positioned further apart as well, resulting in a lower capacity to maintain zero deflection, when compared with the Indespension trailer.

Aha - the flaw here is clearly the lack of lightening holes...

At least it would be easy to trim its feet

Gotta love this thread

This Yank also appreciates that the original American trailer was sized and built right for the boat!

It's a British boat though-another muppet stuck an illegal (in the UK) American trailer under it at some point
