Trailer Work

Caution to Harold and Doug (ETS) get the defibilator ready.

My trailer was in need of some work. Last year I replaced the bunks and carpet along with doing some touch up sanding and painting. However, my lights were becoming a problem and my fenders were begining to wear. I did some research, talked to some people and decided to have my fenders covered with black Line-x. I'm very pleased with how it turned out. It looks sharp and is very functional. I had a lot of "spider webs" and cracking in my fenders and this took care of it. I replaced all of the hardware with stainless (it was galvanized). Additionally, I pulled all new wires and put in all new LED lights. I've really happy with it. I'll post a picture soon. Can't do it now cause I've got to run out for church.

When you are at church it might be a good time to pray for forgiveness for spraying those fenders with line-x.

Brian, I've got a few spider cracks on each fender where the wheel well meets the step. Just comes from 13 years of using the step. It's not bad yet though. Let's see some pics.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

That's why God created pressure washers.

I was praying there would be a new boat in my drive way when I got home. I guess I didn't pray hard enough.
