If you cant get it into the water use the HIAB, you could if you wanted to use the back of the stolly as a tank of water!
Hehe .... last time I drove one of them it was a rough ... sky , hole in ground, sky, hole in ground , sky , hole in ground experience .. sounds strange but once peeps drive it they'll know what I mean, funny thing was, it got stuck.. on a gently sloping flat grass field .. where the grass was growing on a clay type undersoil , it broke the sod, and spun on the clay underneath

We use the Wurth water displacing spray, very good! We hose the engine down including the alternator and everything and liberally spray the powerhead with the spray - even the head bolts look like new after several seasons.

Only 6? My laser combi still has the same sealed (- yep, the ones that *really* don't like going swimming) bearings it was running on when I got it 18 odd years ago..... It's been through 5 tyres in that time. Before the "discussions" start this is not a wind up - the bearings are being used as they were designed to - i.e DRY!

Bedajim, A couple of random links:

Someone on here has built a couple of combis for their ribs - i'm sure a quick search will find the thread....

Nice job!

Mind you I still think that the best way to avoid brake problems is to have brakes like on my trailer

Updated now winching was far too much hard work



This was the first go with the remote winch, extra tie rods and guides now fitted

The trailer moved as it was on the back of a fork lift truck pin

No, the trolly is on rollers, he pays out with the winch to control the launch. It attracts a fair bit of interest on the slip.
