Regarding brakes, it's hard to tell from those pictures in the other thread. My '89 factory trailer has brakes, but I knew of another '89 factory trailer that did not, so apparently it was an option.

On my '89 I bought a larger cupholder, traced it onto some masking tape on the fiberglass, took my rotozip and cut it out free-hand. I also made sure to trace the outside of the flange, as I knew...

Send it back for sure. That knot needs to be done correctly from the factory, as it obviously takes all the stress on a pull. There were some people on our show team that could re-thread a rope...

Just to throw my 2 cents in here, I switched to a 160 degree awhile back, thinking it would be better if I ever installed a heater. And for the reasons mentioned on Skidim site. My temps were...

Crazy pictures. Any more pics of tha car? I had a '79 Celica as my first car, pretty decent car actually. Not quite the trailer queen that one appears to be though!

That is a sweet setup! Reasonably priced too. I bet that sure makes winter more fun up here in the frozen tundra. Instead of heli-skiing, you could start a new sport, Jeep skiing!

The other nice thing about the powerslot is the boat has more "holding" power when you are pulling hard when slalom skiing. I never minded my 1:1 until I started getting serious about course skiing...

I skied a few sets on an '84 before buying my '89. If anything the '84 might be slightly smaller, due to a bit less boat weight. But very similar, still had the bump at 22, but a very good wake in...

The way our trailers are designed something needs to be there. I don't hit it every time, but if the trailer and launch aren't perfect it rubs there. I thought of making some kind of a lower "V"...

I lowered my insurance value on my '89 to $8,000 a few years ago, down from the $14,000 that we bought it for in 1997. No way I could get $10K for mine now, lots of nicks, dings, fading gel, etc. ...
