That's interesting...

"The best thing we did was to throw away the rubber rollers and put pneumatic wheels and tyres in place of the rollers"

Where did you get them from?!? How much messing about with the trailer did you need to do, or was it a straight swap?

Cheers,

Dylan...

Hi Dylan

We got them from a local ball bearing supplier. I have seen them under race boats with pretty little covers on them so they do not mark the hull.

Sorry

Second part of your question. We did have to modify the carriers by shaving (with a grinder) a small part of the roller carrier away. You must remeber that these are not big diameter wheels anyway !
