Yep the trailer stays dry and the trolley is a bit like a dinghy trolley no bearings just bushes, it can be winched onto the road trailer with rollers so 1 man operation, Ill put a better picture on later

I made the trailer up, have done a few for dinghies and one for a smallish racing yacht this is my first rib, Im not happy with putting the trailer in the water and towing it home, So the launching trolley has a set of balloon tires to help with the sand mud on the slip and it slides onto the trailer using rollers mounted between the main beams, the trolley axle beam rests on two legs at the back of the trailer covered in pvc tube and is self locating.

Tows great too will sit at 75 all day or would if legal!!

I found a small local company who supplied the bits and pieces (wheels, suspension etc) then welded up the frames and sent them to the local galvanisers.

The supports for the hull are made from flat section steel shaped around the hull with 40 mm diameter tube fixed to the top and a smaller tube then pushed inside, spreading the load over a large area
