Trailer advice needed - asap!

Just found This on Fleabay with 16 hours to go.

Anyone know if it'll be any good for my Ring 18 / Mercury 200 V6 combo? Looks llike a bargain.

Thanks Burty!

Must admit I had my doubts, as it looked a little bit weak and feeble for a boat like mine, but I thought it may be a cheaper way out than having my twin-axle one rebuilt and fitted with brakes, new keel rollers, etc..etc.

I did wonder about the '750kg max loading' too. I don't know what my boat weighs, but 750 kees did seem a bit 'on-the-limit'

Still, probably be a bargain for someone.

well your 200 weighs +/- 190kgs ........... I reckon the 18 all up has to be 600kgs. So you'd be bang on the limit.

Cheers guys! You've all confirmed what I thought, so thanks for that.

Right now I'll stick with plan 'A' which will be to get my existing one fitted with a pair of braked suspension units on one axle, replace the bearings on the other axle with new ones as a precaution (They're cheap enough) and then weld myself up a detachable light board assembly which will be neater than bungee-ing one off the back of the boat. Couple of coats of blue Smoothrite and it should look smart enough.

Off to get a price from the repair guys today, so we'll see what happens.
