Trailer or axle wanted.

I have just taken on the role of powerboat bosun at the local sailing club, for the junior section. Once the kids are club members(cheap to join) they use all the facility's for free and we all volunteer our services for free also, and rely mainly on fundraising to keep going.

We have a old heavy 15 foot glassfibre dory that is our main safety/training boat and it is looking very tired, so I have taken it on as a winter project for the club.

The most costly of the problems I have to address is the trailer ,as it sit on a modified sailing dinghy launch trolley that could expire at any moment !.

I am looking for a road trailer to put it on, It need not be roadworthy as it will never see the road (just used on private land) . I have been given a small budget for the refit so nothing new or expensive please, Trailers requiring a bit of TLC no problem.
Thanks in anticipation.

Can anyone help ?.

Bit over the top but you can have this for free
Axle
No breakers and I towed 230 miles no problem with it last time I used it!

Thanks Nick , thats a very generous offer. Can I hold fire until I see if a trailer is forthcoming, as the axle option is a last resort for me due to the huge amount of work needed to the existing trolley !.
Thanks again and will let you know one way or the other.
Cheers. J

When will you need it CamelGas?

I've got an old trailer that I'm replacing with a new build, you're welcome to it when I finish the new one.

It's currently got quite high bunks to suit a cat hulled sib but I can change it to suit a dory if you want?

Free to a good cause and it's in Hereford so not too far from you?


Jim
