Just got a Ribeye A600

Hello! Very excited just got myself a Ribeye A600 with an F115 with 300hr on. Been boatless for two years, have been begging and borrowing after the boat yard sank my last boat! Going to be keeping the boat in South Cornwall and Brighton. The trailer that was with it was dead so waiting on a new trailer that should be ready in two weeks.

Any recommendations as to what to treat my new trailer with? It's going to be going in and out of the sea a fair bit, I will hosing the trailer down just as much as I can, but any recommendations for gunk that I can spray/paint the trailer with would be appreciated ...

Really good to see you have a new to you ribeye A600 enjoy .........with regard to new trailer try not puttting it in the water to start ,just up the top of the tyre wall , if the slip is reasonably steep you will be amazed (and a site richer at the start of the next boating season ) after all with engine up and nobody aboard you can poss push it in a foot of water ,you dont need to float it off as it will roll .
i know now there are readers of this calling me a four letter word now, but i will never put my trailer in the water again unless i have too ,and it saves hours of maintainance and lots of pounds
JUST TRY IT ONCE .......you never know !!!

This works for me

My trailer is 14 yrs old and I have always every so often coated what you can see with a thin smear of grease with my hands ( very therapeutic ) taking care around bolts and threads these arenít usued often or adjusted regular but seem to be vulnerable as not all galvanising is what it should be, this works for me as it is a good as new the draw back is you need to be aware your trailer is covered in grease, I beach launch often but strangely itís not covered in sand or grit from trailering

Thanks Black Pig. There are also loads of lanolin based sprays etc, which I guess would have the same effect as grease but not be so had on your clothes!. I'm also thinking of inside the trailer where salt water can get into it. I'm tempted to flood the trailer with old engine oil ........

Rust preventer is great but letís all try to avoid mixing the sea with old engine oil.

Canít beat old oil with a drop of diesel for fencing posts. Especially since they banned proper creosote. You wouldnít want to be tipping it in the sea though. Youíd be very popular at the slip with a slowly expanding film of oil surrounding the trailer.

I knew an old fella who had an old Mercedes and he used to come into a garage I worked at he had this old car for years. he used to say this will outlast me I jack it up and pump old engine oil into the chassis and put a bung in every year . until one day in the supermarket carpark he slammed the door shut and a gallon or so of oil flooded out water had gotten in and the oil was sat on top of it and a big lump of rotten chassis fell off when he slammed the door
