the old ones have had it :'(

can anyone recommend/tell me where I could get some from?
want plastic ones.
do you know anyone who may have converted from skids to rollers?
will take second hand ones if anyone has any lying around?
or any ideas on DIY skids....

size needed 50mmx80mm or 50x100 no shorter than about 1500mm x 2

Diy would be piss easy, just get some gal rectangle pipe and rivet some poly plastic on the top. Otherwise any boat trailer manufacturer will sell you some. Remember for a tinny they are just there to stop it tipping over, all the weight should be on the keel rollers.

Try "Trailer Accessories Warehouse" they are in Jijaws St Sumner Park (i think). These guys supply parts for trailers and will build you one from scratch if you want.

I changed my old felt ones for the teflon skids and got them thru TAW. Got a length, cut it with a hand saw and shaped the ends, drilled a hole in each and att then to the trailer. The cutting and drilling took the longest of the whole job to do.

Cheers

G'day

Get some hardwood planks and cut to size, sit in wood yokes and screw some teflon skid strip on top.

Easy as!

Just a tip, spray the teflon with silicone spray now and then to keep the boat sliding off at a million miles an hour

Whitworths usually have it in stock, they do most things via mail order as well.
