I love the way you welded on those casters on the back. Hows that working out for you? I need to do something as well as the approach to my driveway is just a little to steep. What are those wheels rated at and where did you get them?

not sure about the wheels, but those welded plates look like U-Bolt plates....

Yep, that's what they used. When I originally bought the skid wheels, it came with a plate....but I left that on the single axle trailer when I swapped. Luckily, the u-bolt plate looked pretty dang close so we went for it. We also used 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" square tubing.

Works great! The whole weight of the boat is on those wheels for just a few feet while going into our driveway. AND...no marks on our concrete so huge bonus!

What are your plans for the fenders? Repair, locate used, SS new?

In the spring, I plan on just doing the fiberglass repair myself. After doing it on my last trailer, it really isn't that hard and turned out great! Sure, one fender was a lot heavier than the other due to my "extra amount" of fiberglass, but in my mind, it only beefs it up more!

Here is the thread on the fiberglass work last time.....

Ski-me - did you just spray over the existing rust or brush it off, prime and then spray? I need to do some touch up on mine and wondering how much prep work I need to do first. The rust is spotty - not nearly as much as you had.

Very nice. Thanks for the link to your previous post. I was wondering what people do when one of their Marathons takes out a fender. I will be replacing our 14 year old (Gaaa!)Marathons in the spring, and wasn't looking forward to losing our tandem OEM stock fenders in case of a blowout.
