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?

Re: Status trailer
None forthcoming so I have done some myself which I am happy to share with others, if they are of use.
One longitudinal drawing and 3 drawings 8 sections including the stern just to complete the picture.
It seems that I can only add one image at a time?So will try editing and adding others later
Now is the time will add extra drawings showing sections.

Re: Status trailer
Now attaching section drawings.
The dimensions shown for each section is the horizontal distance from a perpendicular from the winch eye below the bow. To get the dimension from a section to the bow add 140 mm to the section dimension shown.

The dimensions written on the hull line are the vertical dimensions from the trailer beam (horizontal) to that section of the hull on the keel line.

The Boat is shown inclined such that if the last roller is at section 6 then on a ramp it should be easy to launch without the hull having to climb over the last roller or the last roller having to be lowered to launch. Email me if you have any difficulty reading the drawings.

Re: Status trailer
Final drawing showing sections marked on the longitudinal drawing.
Other sections can be derived drawing section before and after on top of each other then the desired location can be drawn by interpolating between the other 2 sections.
