Sure will do. May be a while by the time Ive sourced all the bits, then taken the boat down to the Marina and stopped playing with the boat for long enough to sort the trailer

Might have to do it when its blowing a gale.

Check your local home improvement store. It's used for building decks (house decks, not boat decks.)

Trailer pics

Appologies for the delay Ive been diving :-)

Attached are some pictures of my trailer for the Hysucat stealth 6.5. Its an indespension big dipper. The side guide brackets were made by a local metal fabrication shop for 60 and I then had them galvanised. The side guides are hardwood planks.

The winch post came with the trailer however I modified the bow support as you can see. The post adjusted high enough to pull horizontally.

The boards are buffalo board which is pretty good but has started to wear in places and does stick after a long journey however I have fixed this with a smear of cheap waterproof grease after 5 launches.

The only issue is getting the hulls onto the rollers on the rear cross member, I would like to replace these for longer tubular rollers wthout the wheels at either end but havent found the time yet.

Applogies for the trailer having the boat on but I didnt have the camera on the beach.

Hope you don't mind me joining your post, but does anyone know if anyone has used Kedel's product to use as bunks?
I have a 3.4 mtr Zodiac, I've just purchased a trailer (sick of launch wheels) and i'm wanting to fit bunks to it.
Their product seems ideal so was wondering if anyone else has tried it.

Nothing wrong with using a recycled plastic product for bunks, although for a SIB I personally would want carpet to protect the fabric. I would guess you can find a staple gun powerful enough to put the carpet onto the Kedel product, and glue might help.
