That's why we went to Calshot, and it was still awkward. I need to cut 4 U-bolts and reposition the front and middle set of rollers.

Looks well! Bet your well pleased with all that hard work!

My 6.5 it's a PITA as well to get off the trailer, have got it down to a t now, with a quick dab of reverse.

Thanks

This nearly had to be 100% floated off-there's several semi-seized rollers on the trailers and it really didn't want to move.

Yeah I used to have to float it off fully, when full of fuel and don't think I have any seized rollers? and my quick dab should have said quick dab on brakes when in reverse to help it on its way.

Ahh, ok. I guess I'm not using Baiter Slip with it then unless it's high tide.
