While I make no secret of the fact that we also supply boat trailers ourselves, everything that I have posted in this thread is based on the information which I have managed to obtain from examining the trailer and speaking to people in the marina, which I have tried to present without bias.

The reports I have heard (from more than one source) are that the trailer failed causing the boat and trailer to contact with the back of the Land Rover. I have heard no mention of a jack-knive being involved. Even if the trailer had jack-knived, I would not expect to have found the amount of damage present on this trailer. We had one of our hire trailers come back with jack-knife damage a couple of years ago. While the front end was very bent, it was still in 1 piece and all the welds were still in tact.
