Hallmark Coaster 1

Hi,
Just bought an Avon 5.60 with a 115 Yammy, the trailor it is on though slightly concerns me, its a brand new Hallmark Roller Coaster 1 (indespension) what bothers me is that the trailor only has 8 rollers (4 each side). This doesn't seem like enough to me. Anyone else think that for a 5.6m boat that is not enough ?

Cheers
Chris

You will be fine with eight rollers. However there is a popular upgrade called the "Warrior spec" (after a pop fishing boat) if you want which replaces the front fixed rollers with another swing arm similar to the rear.

What I would recommend is the bearing protectors, brilliant bits of kit and replace the tyres. You probably have 145s but the rims will go up to 175s. They look much more sturdy and help when launching down uneven slipways or across sand / gravel. The 145s always look under inflated and don't last long. They will also propably be a cheap and nasty make. Go for something like Avon van tyres with the extra plys and they will outlast the trailer.

They replace the wheele bearing dust caps. The bearing protector has a grease nipple and a spring which pressurises the hub with grease stopping salt water from getting inside. Brilliant bit of kit. Suggest you call into the Indespension dealer on the A27 just past the Hamble. They are pretty hopeless at servicing trailers (failed to spot the shoes were in back to front on a second hand trailer I bought last year which meant they couldn't ajust the brakes properly) but do stock most bits including the protectors. Parking is dfficult so don't take the trailer. But might be worth taking one hub for size.

yeah, the bearing protectors are good!
Get the guys to fit them - saves a lot of mess, and they'll fill the grease reservioir with waterproof grease for you as well, then just keep your own grease gun full of the same type of grease (apparently watrerproof grease doesn't take kindly to being mixed with non-waterproof. This may be an urban myth, just passing on what I was told!)

Also, talking of myths, I was also told that SUPER-UNLEADED lasts longer than ordinary unleaded... can anyone corroborate that?

Hi, as Pete7 says, they're great bits of kit. Here's one I fitted to a customers' trailer when I fitted a new drum and shoes etc, during a service.



The Indespension part number is HU008. You'll also need 2 x HU013, which are the plastic caps that cover the ends and protect the grease nipple and spring.

All the best

PS. Pete's also correct about the front roller swing beam upgrade, but be careful about specifying 'Warrior', as this has extra long 'L' brackets, that hold the roller arms on. You'll probably just need normal height 'L' brackets.
