Come on guys, you can do better than that......

I have not finished the roller bunks yet so am unable to try the boat for correct weight distribustion......sorry Mollers...

Willk...your close (in that your looking at the construction of the trailer) although the back crossmenber was deliberate since there are 10 keel rollers soon to be fitted to the centre beam.

Look towards the other end!

Yes, 'dix points' to Ashbypower.....

Yep, cant believe i overlooked it but clamping up the J/Wheel is gonna be a bit of a bugger!...gonna have to fabricate a custom brace instead of the standard Knott brace.......Doh
