Thank you for your message. Condolences on the passing of your father. It is very sad that he is gone. He was rightly proud of his Winkle Brig. We still enjoy it every year. With that pleasure we will continue to remember and honor your father. Thanks again for informing us.

Hi. Now treading what seems a well worn route we are puzzling about trailer capacities. The Roller Coaster 3 which came with Kairos has a 1300kg axel but a 1100 trailer spec plate. It can take 775kg weight so not much wiggle room for a WB for trailing to new launch sites.
It seems that several members have upgraded their Axel's to 1300kg however when we asked Indespension about getting the trailer plate changed to reflect the axel already on the trailer we were told that due to the outrigger arms being weak they can not come with more than 1100kg hence the trailer restricted plate.Insidentally all of the roller coaster 3 models come with the 1300kg axel as standard so rather misleading for us initially.
Has anyone come across this problem and have they found a way to get around it? When we asked about upgrading the outrigger trailer section we were told it's not cost effective to do so.
What also seems confusing from previous posts are the allowed weight capacities calculations. Any clarity around this much appreciated.

Hi looking to tow to The Dart this Summer. Looking for pointers on a good insurer for covering the boat in transit etc. Any pointers on this much appreciated. Current insurer will only cover if I am towing which will not be the case, wondering if others have got round this or have a great insurer to recommend. New ball game once you use these boat as trailer sailers! Thank you in advance. Jilly.

Hi. Just returning from a recky of the River Dartmouth and surrounding area. Please can anyone recommend a launch site. We need to leave a trailer and car for approx 7 days. Steamer quay Totnes has restrictions plus I did not see where to tie up to on launch into fast flowing river so did not fancy that prospect. Any advice very welcome. Jill.
