Re: Unknown Proctor wooden boat on ebay

Yes Pat very much lighter, min weight was 200lb/90kg... wayf 373lb/169kg(so google says).... Zenith a tad shorter at 14’6”

Be great if someone took this one on.... though the timing is hardly promising....

Re: Unknown Proctor wooden boat on ebay

Re: Trolley tyres

Yes they look good to me, not tried them or looked at the size or spec in any detail yet... hoping they be an easy swap for standard ones....

Re: Trolley tyres

I’ve had similar issues with new trolley wheels only lasting a few months.... I’ve replaced them with some very old ones off an old trolley, these are lasting better but are so old a cracked they can’t last that long....
