I thought it would be a good idea to check my roller assembly this year in view of my forthcoming trip to Venice. Having propped the boat up and removed the swing beam, I saw to my horror that the only part of the trailer which is not Indespension (and must have been fabricated especially for the Winklebrig)ie the roller bar support bracket, has badly rusted and two have twisted. It might be worth others who have original trailers and who salt water launch checking this

Having straightened out the brackets I had a web plate added to the inner vertical to stiffen up the whole thing (so it won't happen again) and as I was having it all re-galvanised I added a third roller bar in the middle of the other two to help spread the weight on the hull and possibly ease the boat on and off more smoothly. (I don't know yet as I haven't tried it).

Sorry! Not quite sure what I did wrong here with the picture Julian! Can you sort it out for me or shall I try and submit again?
