Re: Roadford Nationals important

Great weekend, best weather I've ever seen at a CVRDA event :lol: thanks to Alan and crew for organising such a fantastic event... Good to see old friends there, really enjoyed the whole thing... The Bar-b-q was up to Alan's usual high standard, more than we could eat or drink, and thanks to all who...

Re: Roadford Nationals important

Alan, the Jollyboat probably won't be ready for Roadford so I will be bringing the I14.

At the moment I don't have a crew so if anyone would like to crew for me there is a space (;>))

Re: Roadford Nationals important

Hi Alan, hoping to be there with Fairey 18, have contacted Roadford re camping. Trust that you can provide excellent weather as well as the aforementioned BBQ :D

Re: Jollyboat trailer

Hi Justin, my trolley is 3200mm from wheel centre (main support) to front of trolley so a bit longer would probably be better, say 3400 to 3600mm. You need to make the trailer wheels spaced widely enough to get the trolley wheels inside the trailer wheels otherwise the boat/trolley will sit too far ...

Re: Jollyboat trailer

Hi Justin,

I am using a Wayfarer trolley on a combi trailer. The trolley is fine but the trailer axle is a bit too far forward.

I will measure the trolley tonight and let you know, it will give you an idea for the trailer length.

David, you do realise that this has now gone viral and has become the official history of Mercury II?
