We now have a new launching extension for recovering Safety Boats and avoiding the tractor getting submerged. The old one was badly corroded and will be scrapped.
The new extension is a few inches shorter but the axle is substantially heavier which might help with low nose weight on RIB trailers. It can also be used on keelboats where the jockey wheel is not in good order.
I left it behind the top boatshed this morning.
