Traditionally a Y-Class wouldn't tow at all. It may handle the tow rope between the ALB and the casualty vessel.

D-Class eyes are much stronger and better positioned for the towing set up used.

I did think that what you had would probably be for lifting, which explains why our one doesn't have them! it's from the era when ALB's had a ramp for launching the Y-Class rather than a hiab or manual davit.

Hi,

Just wondering what anchors people are carrying on their Y classes?

Cheers

Spend a week away in Shell Island, Wales. Great time in the Y class worked brilliantly!

Looking for trailer ideas. The Y class have huge hulls which makes my current trailer very high. I was wondering if you could upload some photos of your Y class trailer?

Cheers

RIBase
Had 3 different trailers, always limited by the tubes touching the mudguards, can't go lower without a wider trailer.

Current one is SBS.

Previously had an Indespension Vario with bunks and an Extreme inflatable boat trailer.

De Graaf for me. Height not a major issue as I roll it off the trailer onto transom wheels and then launch from the wheels.

Got a Vario at the moment but doesn't fit it great has to alter it to fit under the tubes in doing that I've raised it to clear the trailer cross sections therefore making it hard to launch.
