    Re: Aluminium T Top Roof

    About to pack her away she cleared my gates by 3cm on each side the trailer mover woeked great glad i built it it never slipped one bit moving the trailer 20 meters even on loose dry dirt but i will see soon when i push her out the back

    The trailer mover used heaps of battery power the NS40 battery was full after moving the trailer 20 meters the battery was put on charge and read 47% i think the battery is only about 40ah

    Re: Aluminium T Top Roof

    I just got the boat back inside the gates i had a tiny bit of a problem the trailer movers handle broke off it was weak chinese 2mm steel and the mover really needs some muscle to turn it and the wheels bogged in the soft dry dirt but instead of trying to power it out as i tried it just dug a deep hole i tried pulsing the back button and she pulled straight out of the hole

    Boat is just hehind locked gates it took around 35mins to load up and another 35mins to move into the backyard i had to jack the front of the trailer about 15 times all up in/out of the yard to turn the trailer mover wheels in the right direction

    Add another jockey wheel mount Gazza - quick lift with the jockey wheel to change direction instead of stuffing around with a jack.

    I think youíll find itís to late. Order probably left the store and in transit. Itís not Whitworths that cause delivery delay, itís what happens after order leaves the supplier

    Well done on the trailer

    Got my belt sorted it took a regular automotive 75cm 4 grove belt, the actuall mercury belt is a stretch belt but mine had shrunk from not being installed over 2 years and would have been to tight to stretch 25mm

    Now im going to charge the battery and put some fuel in the under floor tank and get the engine running to see how minor the leak is
