Trailer Borrowing for 6.2m

I've done the tape measure bit and all looks a little tight so just to make sure...

Is there anyone local to me who could lend me a trailer suitable for a 6.2m Max RIB. I don't want a monster trailer, just a normal size trailer for a 6.2m, to size up my driveway before placing an order for my new RIB and buying a trailer of my own.

Hi Andy,

I have a De Graaf for our Ribcraft 585. It is at Hamble. I realise it is a tad smaller than you need, but if it would be a point on the curve, you are welcome to try it one Sunday whilst we are out on the water!

PM me if you want to try it. We should be down Sunday this week.

Tony
Next table at the Folly.

Thanks Tony, I might well have bought one by then as when I did a bit of phoning around to get some general dimentions I was offered a trailer suitable for a 5.8 speedboat (which should suit a 6.2 RIB) at what I thought was a fair price. Might well go down and see it at 5.30 today and see if I can't offer a deposit to try and buy.

So, what might the 6.2m rib be?

You'll have to Guess

Might be a 5.8 though.

It's gonna have 150 horses on the back though

Good choice squire, are you going to do the fit out yourself?
