Replying to:Status trailer
Is anyone aware of any scaled drawings of the Status 580 /19 such as would be useful for selecting of finding a suitable road trailer? It seems to me that there are 2 choices a trailer with less than 1600mm clearance between mudguards and then fitting running gear to elevate the hull above the mudguards or Finding a trailer with around 1800 mm between guards that will allow lower running gear without the hull fouling the guards and therefore easier launching and retreiving. It appears that keel rollers behind the centerboard (looking from the winch) are not the best design as upper pressure on the board during launching and retreiving might contribute to pivot bearing tube bending? Anyone with experience want to comment on the best design of rollers for the trailer rear end. In particular ways to keep the boat central as it is retreived?
