Get on his case and get it replaced. It's warrantied and at a guess CE Cat C marked, but I'm buggered if I'd take that out in anything more strenuous than CAT D waters. I thought it was a trick photograph for a bit that hull is flexing so badly.

does look like a lot of flex.
Have you looked at these...?

If you dont want to go the bunk route, and want to spread
the load on the hull a bit better.
I know its not a dealer provided solution, but just something
to bare in mind.

Although I prefer bunks to rollers there's lots of well made boats sitting on rollers without flexing problems so I don't think the trailer can be blamed.

This boat is seriously crap and there's no guarantee a replacement will be any better.

Go for a refund.

Good point, and I reckon you're right. I wouldn't really want a like for like replacement!

A quick search of the Members List shows 4 other Seapro owners on this forum. It may be worth contacting these guys to ask if they have experienced similar problems.

Get it back to BH marine asap.

I think that you could be in for a bit of a fight with that supplier.... BH love taking your money but are not very helpful when problems with their substandard products arise

it won't heal itself, start the ball rolling now and do it by letter, you might still be getting lip flapping 2 years down the line, at least you can prove you complained early enough.
do the company make the boats or are they agents, if they're agents bypass them and go to the manufacturer
just another thought, who's to say the company will still be there next year even, get it sorted now

does the trailer not have keel rollers?

in my years of boating, boats this size and their trailers "usually" have one of the following-

1. bunks.

2. lower amount of normal hull rollers (usually 2/4 each side at front and 4 each side at back) PLUS 2/3 keel rollers.

example- http://www.compasstrailers.com/useri...SCF0453gif.gif

3. a lot of rollers at front and back (usually 6 at front and 8/10 on the back each side).

example http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/i...263_3.-450.jpg

if they give you another boat with same trailer i'd ask for the trailer setup to be looked at.

cheers
