Anyway isn't Radio 1 some sort of historic reactionary pop station run by Tony Blackburn, Simon Bates and Dave Lee Travis? I prefer Zouk Radio on the internet!

I think that trailer is just perfect in fact I thnik it does for trailers what Stevie Ray Vaughn did for guitar playing.

I think most users want a boat trailer that is strong and reliable, that isn't unnecessarily heavy and offers the greatest load capacity for it's given weight.
Something that is relatively straightforward to maintain, that can take a knock or two without breaking and still looks tidy after a few seasons use.

I think most users would expect a trailer to have sufficient hull support to ensure safe transport, launching and recovery but wouldn't want to waste money and increase maintenance by having twice as many rollers and wheels than is really necessary.

I think most current boat trailers don't have all round walkways because most boat owners don't want it. So unless the walkway contributes to the strength and is part of a clever light weight monocoque design then it's usefulness is negligible and its extra expense and weight a waste.

I think, I'm outside their target customer base...

Hmm .. theres got to be something there that makes the rollers pop up a bit, I'm guessing its keel weight ? .. and it must have been a pig to design something like that and not compromise payload .. looks very cool

Nope closer inspection says no just a fancy boat trailer with a walk way then

I'd be worried about getting it wet!

Fine for transporting a Goldfish rib, but the walk-round section is over-kill. I love balancing on my trailer axle when retrieving!
