I'm Kirsty, 22, and a mechanical engineer specialising in gear inspection. Me and my boyfriend have a 4.2m Ribcraft with a 40hp Mariner outboard.
Ive joined the forum as the axle snapped on the trailer on our way back from Cornwall last Sunday (on the M5 of all places!!). We got the boat lowloaded home, and we decided that the cost of repair and age of the trailer meant it was easier to replace the whole thing.
We have ordered a new trailer from indespension which we pick up tomorrow, then we have the mammoth task of getting the RIB from the old trailer to the new one on the roadway by the house..
Any advice on doing this would be awesome..
Good to find the forum, and good to start learning a lot more!
Hope to hear from you all at some stage
