Sorry Camelgas did you mean the upright tube? or the brackets that hold them?

The plan for the tube is nylon pipe- to act as a roller and it'll be a bit more sympathetic than galv tube rubbing against the boat (which reminds me I need to drill another hole at the bottom of the tube).

If you mean the bracket that they slot into (on the trailer chassis) the holes are for weld nuts so I can use a "hand knob" to tighten it up.

jky

Thanks for the advice jyasaki, I was hoping marine ply would be ok but I don't really do woodwork.

Use a Trex type recycled decking material, and it will last as long as the trailer. You can change carpeting down the road.

That's a blimmin great idea.

I was looking to make some signposts a while ago, steel posts with recycled plastic fingers at the top. I got in touch with Filcris who were really helpful.

They said it can be worked like wood, sanded or routed and like you say it'll last forever.

Cheers Peter

Grab handles and roller bracket, nylon billet which will end up as a roller.
