good time to ratchet up the MCOCD and wax those hard to reach areas.

Every trailer I have seen from Colorado is beat to hell like that...including the trailer for our 190 that we bought 18 months ago!

What kind of roads do you guys have out there!?

Keep us updated with pics!

The roads are not bad until you get near the lakes.. Then mixed asphalt with loose gravel on top, going slow helps a little

It took me over an hour to get the old bunks off, almost all the bolts were free spinning in the wood.... PITA!! Then I got 6 hours of grinding in today, got it all down to bare metal. Put it away for the night, going to get her primed in the morning and painted in the afternoon.

A quick pic before the MC decal was wire wheeled off.

Hey Tow boat Capt, looking great! I wanted to let you know I just sent this thread to the PO before me. We are all looking forward to you bringing this boat back to its prime. I wish I had your garage space.

I have seen a number all pitted in the same areas...all were really bad, including ours. Hopefully will get to ours this summer...leave it on our lift for a few weeks up north and bring the trailer home for full restore.

Alot of hours to do what you are doing but it will look great when you put the boat back on it!
