Does the trailer count? Replaced a stuck wheel cylinder and repacked all the wheel bearings. Vacuum bled system and adjusted brakes.

Put my refurbished dashboard on my 1996 Prostar all back together on Sunday, had it on the water testing the new gauges on Tuesday. Hey, BTW, a small tip. If you happen to replace the speedos on your boat and forget to attach the water lines, they 1) don't work at all, and 2) cause a good deal of water to dump on your shins during speed. Not that it happened to ME, I'm just saying hypothetically if you WERE stupid and happned to forget...just saying...

Repacked the front trailer bearings, un-stuck the brakes adjusters, and adjusted the brakes

Spent some time on the boat over the weekend getting it back up to speed. Bought and installed trailer tires, hit up the DMV for replacement tags I lost, cleaned and waxed the exterior, new plugs for the motor, totally refurbished the interior back to its original glory. Also bought a new starting battery, and installed it. Waiting on gander mountain to deliver my promariner prosport battery charger!

Sorry about the weird filters. My wife posts everything on instagram, thus molesting every image I get. Here's another one from the lake El Capitan Sunday here in San Diego.

Today I finally got my nose job!!

Quick History: I shortened my trailer when I first bought the boat to fit it in the garage. Since I built a new garage I wanted to get a swing-away tongue so I can get it away from the truck.

Initially, with the original bow support, there was really no issue. (Picture 1) Then I got a bow v-pad added (picture 2), but when I added the vertical v-pad post it actually extended past the ball. (Picture 3) I never liked it being that close to the truck.

So I found a guy on PlanetNautique selling this Ramlin swing-away (Picture 4) and I was able to get it. Finally had it welded up today and boy it looks so much better!! (Pictures 5,6,7,8)

I think I need to invest in a new coupler now...

Nice, but you should put a new coupler on to make it look new........
