slatytom slatytom Tue 15 May 2012 23:26:04 Anyone got keel rollers on their trailer and do they work, I was was thinking about fitting a winch and some keel rollers(maybe 4) on my trailer any advice welcome . I just bought my manta and sailed it for the first time last week lovely boat!


MattLancs MattLancs Fri 02 Sep 2016 17:53:04 Hi, did you get any feed back for the trailer? I've just had a nightmare trying to recover mine for the first time. Would you be prepared to send me some photos of your trailer set up?

It was my wife who successfully did it in the end and she simply manoeuvred the boat into position by holding onto the shrouds rather than using the back line which I had been doing. Holding the shrouds gives a real positivity to positioning and ensures everything is in line. I found also that the trailer needs to be in the water far deeper than you’d expect.

I have six keel rollers on my trailer, I think they are necessary to get the boat up easily. I haven't had any problems with either launching or recording. on my trailer the keel rollers take almost all the weight, the side rollers keep the balance.

Ian & Julie Ian & Julie Sun 12 Feb 2023 19:33:50 Not good for the tyres and wheels but we’ve always had to completely submerge them to get her on the trailer. We’ve no keel rollers at all, just a piece of wood that she sits on !
