My new combo trailer...yipeeee

Hi Everyone,
This is my new custom built combo trailer with launching dolly.
A good mate of mine is a welder/fabricator and he came to the rescue when I was grumbling about having to completely submerge my trailer to launch and recover my TT-Supacat. I was forever having to pump fresh grease into the wheel bearings to stop salt water damage to them, plus the original trailer had to be schlepped that far into the water to float the boat of the bunks and with me clocking 44 I wanted something a lot easier.So he came round to my house, measured up my boat and came back with three designs and this was the one I settled for.
All new construction with new components, fully galvenised and delivered within a week,the price was 795 all in, which I was made up with.He has not only used roller wheels but also hard p/u wear sliders for the contact point between the dolly and trailer.
It had the first launch this weekend and was brilliant, so much easier.

Anyway, I hope you like it....I DO!
If anyone in the North Wales or chester area wants anything welding,fabricating or designing pm me and I will send you his contact number.

You might be onto a money earner there.

One question, how do you stop the trolley jumping off the main trailer in transit?

Hi Flyguy,
The winch stays attached to the dolly, there is also a spring loaded location pin that is also mounted to the main trailer (the same as the winch) that goes through a hole in the dolly to secure it and there are four u bolts on the main trailer that when the dolly is located securely on the main trailer the straps go around the boat and secure to these thus reinforcing the whole locating procedure.
It worked a treat last weekend and Gareth (the welder/designer) realy did his homework after coming to my house, looking at the boat and listening to what I wanted.

Regards
Howy
