Boat trailer wanted

If anyone has a decent boat trailer suitable for a 10m inboard RIB, that weighs 2400kg, ie 3500kg gross, that they are willing to do a sensible deal on, then please contact me.
Cash waiting, but it must be in A1 nick, and less money than you can now buy a good new one for!!!!
A few that I've looked at have been similar price as a new shiny one!
thanks
Jono

Hi Jono,

That's a handsom looking new boat you have there! Will we see you on the Poker run in Aug?

If you don't need to do too much road mileage (not strictly legal) you could check out a yank trailer. They tow lovely, and are so simple compared to the European crap.

there's one on ebay at the mo, but this one looks a tad scruffy

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ALUMINIUM-6-WH...mZ230270313365

How's that lovely girl of yours? We need banana cake, and she da girl!!!!!!

Jon

Thanx and yes

Steady on JF, you're being complimentary bout a RIB!! Haha!!
There's an even nicer one on ebay, that's only just come across from US with a 30' bayliner on it, but I think it's only got one braked axle, and of course there's the hitch issue...prob is, I have other types of trailers here so don't really want to keep changing me ball!
Mary's very well thanks....I'll have to persude her to proffer multiple banana cakes for the Poker run??!! Gill's had me down for ages!
You had fun in the RB08? Watched with great interest!
Cheers
Jono

No, not the next, but possibly the last.

BTW, the new one is 32, not 31. The clue to the riddle is in the length.

So is the new 32 only going to be a 1 of only 3?, not going to run any production to carry the Phantom name on Jon,

If so its a pity coz it does look well nice in real life,

Unless there could be possiblity of the poss splashing issues !!

I thought we'd stopped all that multiple name nonsense!.

1 of 'maybe' 3, or maybe 2, or maybe just a one-off, who knows.

I am faced with a dilema, the original boat (Warlord) is facing getting cut up, as the deck is horrid, and no longer fits the hull because the sheer band was altered when producing the plug for the 32. Even to fit a shortened version of the 32 deck would mean making good on the fwd sheerband of the hull to be able to use it. Cutting it up seems a dreadful waste to me, but it's a real posibility.
So, another option is to build a prototype / one off rib with it by cutting the topsides down and giving it a flange, a floor, etc and producing a large open deck rib.
Would end up about 32/33 feet long overall and with a large pair of cake mixers and a hooooge bow tank would be a pretty capable boat, despite the silly rubber bits.

I've just been on the blower with Steve Baker for the last hour and a half discussing it. He thinks it's a good idea and a way of Warlord avoiding the grim reapers 9" angle grinder.

Just a thought at this stage, but it is an option.

Its an idea, but sounds like a whole lot of work though Jon,

I take it would be to do endurance racing then?

No, I'd use a real boat for that.

I'd find someone who had a need for such a boat, who'd be intending to hang on to it, before I actually did it.

Not actually that much work, as the majority is the production of the toooobs, which would be down to probably Paul Tilly, the hippy toober.
