I did wonder how bloody awkward it'd be to get back on there. If nothing else it could do with a set of side rollers at the back.

SR4 and bunks works well. Remember they are light enough to reposition the boat by hand...

I think Willk might have been aluding to the fact the Mollers and bunk don't work well, and in particular an issue with some long screws which made a previous trailer into a permanent addition to his hull!

That was in fact, the last non-rollercoaster I'd used prior to this thing.

Not sure why I particularly remember that story - I think it might be because I normally think of Mollers as a reasonably handy / adept person and this is the kind of DIY F*** up that I would make!

Why don't you sell it and buy a bullet-framed bunk trailer or a rollercoaster?

Given your recent successes on ebay, you'll probably end up making a few quid out of the upgrade.

BTW, did you get anyone skiing/wakeboarding off the new A-frame?

A rollercoaster would require additional financial input for sure. Most used bunk trailers are old nails, I'm leaning towards mod'ing the one we have.

No w/boarding yet, it was 1st/2nd trip. We needed to shake the thing down and make sure that all was well. She dives about a bit in a following sea, is this an SR characteristic ?

I've still got the bl**dy alarm going off owing to a switch in the throttle box. Any ideas Bradders?

Change the control box. I may have one here with your name on it.
