Hubs

I have a snipe braked trailer which has now had the brakes disconnected. Any ideas on the hubs that fit this trailer? Click image for larger version

Don't know if this might help in the meantime, shows only two drums for Snipe & lists various Snipe trailers that used them:
Hubs and Bearings - Mersea Trailers

Don't forget that if the brakes aren't going to be reinstated it will be an unbraked trailer & the MLW will be 750kg so unless you already have it might be an idea to get the trailer & full load weighed. I used the local council civic amenities site & it cost me 5.50 incl printout - I keep it in the car when towing just in case!

The boat is a northcraft 5.4 so what do you think that weighs with a 120kg outboard on it too?

Good question, I had a quick look on the net before posting the above & even Northcraft's site doesn't appear have that info unless the 'displacement' figure is the one? If so, you look as though you're well within but I'd rather be on the safe side.
Range of High Performance RIBs - Northcraft Rigid Inflatables

ETA the link doesn't show a 5.4 but the 5.5 looks ok ASSUMING the 'displacement' figure is the one. But I'd really want a proper weight for your boat spec as it stands to add the outboard to.

Get it on a public weighbridge before VOSA stop you.
Guessing is all very well, but it won't stop you being forced to leave the boat at the side of the road plus given a large fine if you get weighed and aren't legal.

You may even find that with brakes disconnected it's treated as a dangerous illegal defect anyway if it's got a plate on it saying it's got a MAM of over 750kg.

Basically, cover your back because VOSA are self-funding,poorly trained vindictive b*s*a**s

My rib is a 5.4 with a 60 Etec and also on an unbraked trailer, out of curiosity I took mine to a local weighbridge and the boat and trailer came in at 690 k. I'm now glad I did...if my 2 x 25 litre fuel tanks are full they weigh approx 50 kg then there is my anchor chain and warp which comes in at 15 kg so that then puts me over the 750 kg limit.

Before having it weighed I threw everything into the rib, spare fuel ,life jackets etc. so I was driving illegally I wish that I would have had a braked trailer now as I have to throw everything into the back of my Terrano.

Cheers guys.

Well now thinking of getting another trailer. Does anyone have one for sale?

Is there any regulations of the height or size of the lighting board?

The hubs look like Peak 203x40 or 200x50. Difficult to tell from the back. Take another piccy, same as the one with drum on it's own, but the other side (i.e. the outer / front face) and I should be able to tell you. Although Snipe had a tendency to use Knott/Avonride axles. There should be a little plate, riveted to the centre of the axle. If it's a small, oval, green and silver one, it's Peak. Avonride will have "Avonride" on the plate and some i.d. numbers. I may have a pic on my phone.

Out of curiosity - why do you need to i.d. them? Are you just curious, or looking to change them? Just saying, as that one looks like it's in good nick tbh
