Haven't got it wet yet so intend tying those brake lines up so they dont hold water, greasing the exposed brake cables and wheel studs if they're not done. Anything else?
Did Bob offer you the option of sealed LED lights?, I have one of the JetSki trailers which is spec'd similar to yours, Bob is making a storage box & sorting the LED's lights for me.

Hi Paul, no didn't discuss Led's, probably wouldn't be something I'd go for as I use several trailers and there's light boards here all over the place! I first saw these trailers down at Justaddwater boats, he had some of the jetski one's, very impressed with the spec & couldn't believe how light they were. Is it right for a 6M Rib? We'll see.

How do you adjust the rollers up and down or is the trailer custom built?

No not custom built there are 6 supports under the roller bed that adjust about 10" or so, you can sort of see one on pic 4 just above the nearside wheel.

Looks good, if it does float you could water ballast the tyres.
