Keel roller advice please

Hi Guys, my boat is a valiant DR750 and I've just bought a secondhand trailer from the bay of fleas. The trailer currently has 2 bunks one to each side and then a third in the centre for the keel. I'm thinking of replacing the centre bunk with keel rollers and wondered how many to buy/fit. Any advice greatly appreciated.

Not related but it irks me that it's referred to as Fleabay. Any bad experience to warrant it ? Out of all your purchases/sales on the site I wonder how many bad experiences you've actually had ?

Ok there's idiots on there, some selling stolen or not as described items but none more than other sites as we know.

Theres a lot on here who refer to it as such but some are quick enough to list stuff on their (and sell it) when nobody on here wants it. Equally in buying a bargain.

In over 4,500 transactions I've had on the site I've had maybe 5 real problems. Equate those percentages to any other sales market and it's not quite as bad as its reputation suggests. Is it ?

Hehe! Oh dear Peter, sit back, kick off the slingbacks and have a whisky! It's used by me simply as a term of endearment.........

Don't worry I'm not going off on one, just an irk as I said. It's a term I've seen bandied about a lot on here and it just makes me wonder why that's all.

This is the sort of thing I'd supply for a boat that size. You can see the roller set-up in this pic. Hope that helps.
