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

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.

Curved transom mainsheet track for Fairey 14

Still trying to find a curved main sheet track for Maelstrom. I've tried bending a straight stainless one and an aluminium one but no luck. Does anyone have any ideas? Or perhaps an old track that woould fit?
