Many many thanks for the advice and the pictures,i will get some angle or tubing within the next few days and sort out the bracing,the trailer is coming along well so far,managed to get the sib on it over the weekend as a bit of a mock up,just to see how it sits,i could do with a winch post or something similar for the bow to rest against,problem is all the posts ive looked at are way to big,might be a case of knocking something up.

Would have thought that would have been fine considering the size of boat you are carrying
