Help!

The boatyard launching trolley that we have always used to launch the dinghy has been taken into the shed and now the boatyard is trying to sell it to me for a silly price.

Anyone got one spare? (To suit 3m fibreglass tender).

I presume you've tried Fleabay, Boats & Outboards and similar?

Have you tried Scot-ads?

If I hear of one on my travels, I'll let you know.

Tried fleabay. ScotAds is East Coast only. Thanks for keeping a look-out.

Last time they offered it was well into three figures.

I got a nearly new foldy uppy thing off the notice board at the Wardens for £50 but I'm still using it under the Mirror. They were about £120 on fleabay at the time.

Goole isn't so far from us, I could pick it up and get it to Ash/Kip in Sept if you buy it.

Are you still needing one Nick? I might have one in my pile of trailer bits (but cannot remember if it has already been given away). If so, I will have a look on my return home in 3-4 weeks.

Yes, still needing one - not so urgent now as we are lifting the boat today, but will need one before we relaunch in April.
