Going to go for Snipe or Rapide.
I may have a good chance of getting a pristine 75 Yam, what do you think on a 4.7?
I am not connected with De Graaff trailers but I have purchased about four trailers from them in recent years and can only say good things about them. You get value for money the quality is good and being a small family firm they worry about their reputation and give good after care service.
Due to the close tapering spray rails on the Seariders it is difficult to get a roller trailer were at least two rollers do not bridge a rail at the some point on the hull.
I purchased a standard roller trailer from DeGraaff (Blue rollers in pic.) for my SR4.7 and you can see some of the rollers bridging the rails.
With the boat on the trailer (To enable exact positioning) DeGraaff changed and positioned the rollers. The new rollers (Black ones in the pic.) do not bridge any of the rails and it is so easy to lunch.
