newbie
Gday all,thanks for a very informative site, i have been messing about in boats since forever but my only sailing experiance was one afternoon years ago in a vagabond on a small local lake or more correctly in a lake cos i spent more time in than on the water, anyway i am the proud new owner of an rl 24 mark 1 which needs some T L C mostly cosmetic so will work on her over winter and learn to sail her in the spring,my concern is the trailer, brooker single axle tilt with two rows of double rocker rollers instead of centre rollers and skids Q is this set up ok with this hull ? there are no visible stress cracks. thanks again for a good site

Re: newbie
Double rocker rollers are the correct center rollers for the RL24.

The rollers need adjustment up and down to allow the rollers to carry the curved hull of the RL24.

The only trailers that have fixed ladder type rollers are ones build for yachts with a straight skeg under the hull.
