I like that idea - thanks- must check see if they planned on drilling the holes or have a punch press or nibbler which'd make it easy to slot.
To Orville and Downhildai, fair point on the roller adjustment. I did bring them as close together as I could but the flat planing step, some deep chines and lateral stability limit this. The V in the bow is quite pronounced and is the risk area so I've no option but to raise the rollers. I have the bruised knuckles from the impact driver freeing up the U-bolts and the rusty socket set from the session at the slip the following day trying to optimise that adjustment option!
The points about having to sink the trailer deeper and winch more are spot-on too but raising the rear rollers is the best compromise to protect the keel during recovery.
Great feedback guys - it's great to have a a second opinion to help cover all options/implications.
