Oh my! Of course, you know you've got to polish the spot where the v-bunk on the trailer is.

Huge ones!

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.

Thanks for the step by step photos! It almost looks too easy.
Maybe I will be brave enough to try the same thing this spring.

Doug said it best, you have big brass ones to try it.

HA!

I've actually done this before, with my boat mechanic buddy's help, on my old 28 footer, on soft ground in his back yard. But that boat had I/O's trimmed up... no danger of shaft/struts getting creamed if she fell off.

Yes, but very gently.

The garage is directly beneath our bedroom, so if I hear a big CRASH in the middle of the night I think I'll just stay in bed all day tomorrow...

Shepherd nice work... I was lucky enough that my good friends here at the lake have the exact same boat as us! And theirs sits on a lift all year long, so I just borrowed thier trailer for the 2 months I spent refurbing mine... OTherwise I was going the same route you have just done... Boat should look nice when you get done!

Suggestion... I drilled holes in the center v sections on my trailer before I had it powder coated, I always found water sat there and discolored the paint... Drill a hole in the center of each and wualla it will keep water from sitting there and doing damage in the future...

Also I wouldn't recommend keeping ANY of your previous wiring... Its too cheap and too easy to just buy all new... I also went ahead and siliconed all my wiring connections to waterproof them and keep them nice and tight... Cuts down on problems with shorts in the future.

Let me know if you have any other questions... I just went though this whole process...

bbeach, I like the cover on your boat. I need to replace the cover for my 92 PS 190 pretty soon. Where can I get that cover and what do they cost (if you don't mind me asking)?

Pics of the trailer restoration will (hopefully) follow.

Shepherd, what is that blue sticker on the chine just below the boweye on the port side?

I forgot exactly what's on it, but it looks like some kind of inspection sticker. I'll take another look when I get home tonight, maybe post a pic for you.
