Just use a load of old car tyres as cushions.

I really like the trailer jacking idea from the other thread you sent me. Sorry I did search but didn't find that thread!

if you have a set of car ramps you could back your trailer up on them and lift the front with the jockey wheel and jack to give quite a bit of height and just move the boat back a tad to paint where the rollers are when its back on the ground hitched to the car to finish, that would save you jacking the hull its self if it bothers you a bit.

I tried with car ramps, and the trailer wouldnt go up them - it just kept dragging the ramps along the floor, or firing them out.

For reference --- she is not small! I don't think ramps would work with the twin wheels!

BTW she was been cleaned up a lot since!Must get new pics soon

Very nice - I've got a 9m Ribtec probably of a similar vintage with the same engine box and console.

I actually don't know the exact vintage, if there anything on the vessel that would hint / point to it?

Mine's a 2004 model. There should be a HIN number stamped into the transom, possibly with a small plate over it as well. Mine is located on the starboard side, underneath the tube mounting on the transom. I forget if it contains a sequence that directly correlates to build year, but Ribeye/Ribtec may be able to provide some limited detail (although from my previous conversations with them, I understand most of the records of the Ribtec builds seem to have gotten lost in the changeover).
