I think this is done



by fixed, I mean replaced the 3x4 section (10') and called it good for now. We didn't get any pictures of it before the fiberglass went back on, the salt has been very hard on this trailer. Here is a quickie with the boat on now.

Mke, it doesn't really matter...

No matter what you do that trailer it will never be roadworthy

sorry, I just know that the next thread he starts will be "my Rusted trailer broke and I lost my boat"

Please tell me you are reinforce the sections and not exceeding 5 mph. The pics look extremely dangerous.. and now I will not be able to sleep know that an MC is vulnerable to road rash or worse.

Seriously - how can you tow with that trailer in good conscience?

We had two trailers in much better shape fail this weekend at our boat ramp and third ripped in two by falling off boat ramp.

I really don't want to see a post in boat ramp bloopers - this thing looks very dangerous... with all due respect that thing is not road worthy... That's a liability your insurance may not cover - if the worst happened..
