No keel rollers for me ... Let the other rollers do the work. I recover off sand, semi float or afloat and my trailer aligned perfectly every time.

One thing though, I do fit one under the bow which I find essential to stop the rig bouncing whilst being towed on the road

I know, it says so in your profile.

You appear to be misinformed about the rates of pay in West Wales, which I can assure you are not double those of the North of England.

I'm pleased that you are happy with your Searider - they are good boats and have many happy owners.

I did not criticise your 'gear'. My comment related to the cost of Dixon-Bate trailers (high) and that you may not wish to lay out around 2k for a trailer to carry your 5.4 SR. You had originally asked for advice on a De-Graaf, which is a much lower cost trailer and I therefore alerted you to the extra outlay involved in a D-B. You can take it or leave it - up to you.

Rib.net is all about peoples' opinions and you are welcome to express yours. I wouldn't react in the way you have, but maybe I'm less sensitive about such matters.

Spot on NoS, on both counts
