Edge protection

Des
Got me thinking on that, For Roped access SRT work ( rope work on buildings / clifss etc abseiling and going back up) some one came up a roller on a frame that was connected to another via mallion rapides on each side all these make a chain that lead the rope over the edge without damaging either.
Wonder if something like that would work on RIB tubes.

Got to re inforce / add wear pads on the tops of my bow tubes as the springs have worn the top layer of hypalon off in about 10 minutes when a ***# came passed to fast to the pontoon when I was at a briefing a couple of weeks ago. - You often have a bow line keeper but the springs do most of the work and they run at an angle that makes it harder to add a protcetor.

Something like the Petzl Caterpillar ? (For going round sharp edges)
It would spread the load across the tubes.

The Navy us an elaborate system of frames and rollers to stop the rope cutting the tube, maybe a removable ladder that was deployable over the front of the boat that doubled as a solid fairlead might have some merits . Des
Anchor line over the Tubes should not be a problem. We teach Achoring by attaching the Painter (attached to the Bow eye) and allow the eye to take the weight. The remaining anchor warp can be left aboard and used to recover anchor when required. Difficulty still comes however when retriving due to the warp rubbing on the tube!!

It can still happen! I had my boat on a boy earlier this year the weight was on a short line from boy to D ring, then the painter also went to the boy & back over the tubes BUT very loose as a back up!
After a day & night of force 9 gales the loose line had started to where through the top layer
I too kneed where patches on my bow!

A good ladder would be great and a curved plate to fit over the bow for anchor recovery.

One trailer maker has just started offering disk brakes - about time to!!!!

The only people doing disc brakes on boat trailers are Rapide who are now owned by Dixon Bate (as far as I know)
