Trailer Modifications

The bulk of the weight of the boat is held on three rollers along the keel. The centre one takes much of the load, as well as having the centre board resting on it while trailing. It therefore takes quite a battering.

Looking at some other trailers I noticed some had a double roller in the centre. So the front roller was moved back to the centre, to spread the load. While a new roller was added to the front. The small strip of metal under the bolt on the front roller provides some fine adjustment for its height. Time will tell if the weight of the boat is evenly spread across all the rollers.
