It's a neat and great idea for light ribs. Olympic sailors have used this system for years in the Finn class and 470 class. The yard dolly rolls right onto the trailer with a single point attachment in the front with metal tangs in the rear that the dolly axles lock into to keep the back the dolly from bouncing up. Turn the dolly & trailer into one.

Here's some pics below to help describe the system. I hope they explain the idea enough to understand.

It's nothing new realy most sailing dinghys are transported on road bases and launching trolleys
It is quite surprising they've never crossed over to the small rib world
