Hang on to the axle for that roller. Whatever I was sent with my replacement was too short.

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.

Those are nice. I'd like those and I'm looking for the step side stickers too. The grippy type?

And the final product. New carpet on the bunks and I also used some of the Rustoleum silver hammerd finished paint in the areas that are most prone to rust. That paint brushes on thick and is some seriously tough stuff. I had used it on my prop guard on my '88 trailer. It was super durable.

And one more from the rear. I used Rustoleum primer and then two coats of their white Industrial Enamel. I was not happy with the color match of the white so I did a final two topcoats of Benjamin Moore Metal Enamel (spray cans) in Linen White. The color match was nearly perfect.

Brian, that looks GREAT!!!

I have to do the same to my '01 205V trailer.

Did you take the trailer down to the metal? How did you remove the rust spots? I have some HEAVY raised rust coming through all over mine.

I had some very heavy rust spots as well. Everything that was rusty I took down to bare metal with a 40 grit sand paper on my orbital. I then feathered the sanding a bit with finer paper and just roughed up the paint that was still in good shape. Again this is not completely perfect. If you get up close you can see where some of the bad spots were. But I removed all of the rust and have everything coated and protected as good as possible to prevent further rusting as much as possible,

One of the problems I have is that my trailer gets wet and then stays wet. I pull it out of the water and 50 ft to the garage. I don't get to blow dry the bunks and frame on the highway. So during the summer the carpet stays wet constantly. I wipe down all of the rails but it still stays a bit damp.

Type of Paint

I just finished doing the same thing to my trailer. A tech guy told me that regular rustoleum will not stay on the trailer. He said you have to use underwater paint. Let me know how your paint job holds up. So far mine is ok.
