Ahoy 👋

Hi guys and girls just thought Iíd say hello before before crashing in with 150 question. Iím new to boating well being out on the water anyway Iíve painted canal boats for the past 15 years. I bought a 17ft Glastron speed boat last year and not knowing much about boats it was a bit of a spare of the moment thing ( midlife crisis as the wife called it) the cheeky 🐄 . Anyway thatís enough of my midlife crisis ha

The drum back plates on the axle are completely rotted out I didnít notice when buying the boat (school boy error I know) I was buying a boat not a trailer 🤦*♂️ Iíve tried to find out what drums they are but had no luck snipe are trying to sell me a complete axle but the axle is perfect I just need complete drums shoes and Iíll be changing the cables better to be safe than sorry

Any help would be much appreciated

Itís a braked snipe trailer

Cheers
Steve

Glastron is a funny RIB isn't it

Post up some pics of how bad it is, it may actually be better to replace the whole axle, not from snipe though!

You may be better over on boatmad for boat related stuff FYI but lot of trailer knowledge on here to be had.
