Good point.

I'm still waiting to hear back from Ribeye.... Shame really, as they were excellent BEFORE they took my money

Also spoke to the a very nice chap at Bramber Trailers. He seemed very keen to help.

Heard back from them John at Ribeye this afternoon.

They are getting my local agent to sort the issue, and also repair the damage already done.

Looking forward to having it resolved!

I had the same problem with my Ribcraft - on mine the chines were taller/deeper than the depth of the roller, so unless the boat came up exactly square and on centreline, the chine would push against the inside edge of the rear rollers - where there is a steel flange on the roller axle. It did exactly the same sort of 'chip' damage, in exactly the same place.

(Photos are on here somewhere - not clever enough to find them)

After a lot of messing about - the best solution is to get bigger rollers for the trailer so it simply can't happen. With the current rollers, if it can happen now, it doesn't matter how much you adjust it, it can happen again. Adjusting roller setup/position can reduce it, but you won't stop it.

My rollers are asymmetric, so I just turned the outer rollers round so the chine can't hit the flange. I also adjusted the roller positions to improve the situation a bit.

On the bright side, I'm now quite good at gel coat repairs!!

Taking the boat into the very nice people at Kevin Moles to sort next week.

As stated, I'll leave it to them to come up with a solution... but it is frustrating me as to exactly how it's happening.

Fingers crossed that it all gets fixed forever

assuming you purchased the boat as a package, it should have been set up on the trailer so again still not your fault, only flicked thro the posts sorry if some one else has already stated the obvious
