I had this problem on ians old trailer. I overcame the problem by using longer split pins but bending them banana shaped so they went in.

It worked better than the jubilee clips that Ian used

why not show a little courtesy and fill in your profile?

You can get em from Maplins for a tenner or even a big B and Q.

Their is a shop down here selling em off for a fiver if you want some I'll get them and post em up to you

Also you need to get a couple with brakes on so that the trailer has some static support. or else the boat will roll around on the castors all day after recovery

Thanks
Had a look at some in B&Q last night. Do you fit them complete with swivel? Don't suppose you have a photo of a trailer with them on.

You can get them without the Swivel if you want they are a Kwid or so chaeper. I think I might prefer em without.

I Haven't seen a boat with these sort of castors on but I have seen one of those good Belgian trailers with a similar arrangement but with pneumatic wheels

Thanks for all the advice. Went to boat show today determined to buy a trailer, and only found one. A west mersea model and the bloke on the stand could only manage a compliment slip with their website on it!!. Will still pursue converting the bin liner trailer, (which is illegal,) but will only be pulled half a mile to the so called slip about 3 or 4 times a year.
Did get quite excited by a 7.5/8 metre Rib Eye with a whacking great Yamaha on the back, but I suppose that's what boat shows are meant to achieve. If anyone knows about the boat I would appreciate comments.
