Disc brakes from Rapide

I got a quote a couple of weeks ago and they said it would be about £240 extra for the disc brake option, however it seems as though this is still cable operated so perhaps Nirvana is not yet ours. I have a Rapide brochure which I am sure is in PDF format on the site somewhere.

Des,

The website doesn't have any info but their ads in the mags such as rib international & practical goat owner refer to them.

ScottyDog ,

I would really like a way to modify my stainless A-Frame so that I can quickly and easilly hinge part of it so it goes through my garage door. Don't want to drill any more holes in the hull or have to get any welding done - just cut with a hacksaw where I want the hinge ? Lost of stuff about for wimpy bimini's etc .

Cheers

Phil

Is this a Trade post, only joking. Can you tell me more about the trailers?

I feel it would be necessary to have reinforced ends on the cut part of the A frame as, being tubular, it has little scope for a hinge without beefing it up. Are there cables running up or in it ? There would be enough slack, I am sure, but it may make things fun when sawing through the tube. Is it single or double ? How far down does it need to hinge ?

Why do you mention the biminis ? Does this affect your plans for the A frame ?

Des we have also a trade subscription but I prefer to use the Manos thing.
Trailers are made from galvanised steal. They are very durable. Have one since 2002 been in and out of the sea NO CORROSION what so ever any where!! However, I wash it with fresh water every time after I put it in. This trailer is without brakes.
In fact all the trailers I've got are without brakes since the max weight on the boats (the 700RSR is just 750-850kgs and the the 640SRs are a lot less than that so no need).
To add brakes (even to those is simple enough I was told).
The calippers work with SS rods? and they do not rust. However you need to have them properly grased between the connections.
Is difficult to explain but they are not cables. Is better if you see one rather than me explaining. Is quite difficult you understand.

Phil there are A-frames in the market that screw on and off. I use to have one on my Gemini but also Michael the Bat has one of them I think. I will see him tomorrow when we will go for the weekend to visit a few of the Aegean Islands and take a few shots to show you

I do understand before cables came along all trailer brakes were rod operated and although they need careful setting up and are perhaps more vulnerable to some types of damage they are a far better system. I'm Intrigued are you importing these brakes? Des
