It's time to get the trailer some help! I was fortunate enough to borrow a 21' Schiada V-drive trailer to put it on. The only problem now is that I am juggling two trailers to find parking for them! So far though, I have gotten a new prop guard w/ rollers, I got the disc brakes brackets installed, I got the fenders color-sanded and re-gelled white, I got a quote to get the trailer sandblasted for $200 and a quote from Macco and Earl Shieb for ~$300... does anyone have a preference between the two painters??

Just thought I would add a pic of a PS190 on a triple axle trailer... I am sure there are not many rigs like this floating around!

I worked on the trailer yesterday. I cut off the winch post and mounted the new winch directly to the upright, I cut off the bottom peice of the prop guard because it was ground down from my driveway and I got the whole thing stripped down and ready to go to the welder. When it is at the welder, he is going to install a new bottom peice on the prop guard w/ 2 rollers and a new swing away tongue. Here are a few pictures.

On my Last Trailer project I went to the nearby TSC (Tractor Supply Company) and bought a gallon of Tractor/Implement Paint, this stuff is tough!!! We used this on the frame of our old race and this stuff takes a licking and keeps on ticking!! I would recommend this stuff to anyone as long as you can fine a suitable color. It is oil based and is very smooth when it flows out. I applied it using a brush.

SodarSki...just curious. Why did you decide to mount it directly to the upright rather than the existing winch post?

Just for looks... I have been noticing that all the custom trailer builders try to shave anything that is not neccessary, so I decided to start with the winch post. I just got the swing away toungue, prop guard and tounge jack bracket welded onto the trailer. I will get some pics when I get it back from the sand blaster. It is really starting to come together... can't wait for summmer!

I got my trailer back from the sandblasted finally, so i worked on it a little by filling the welds and a few other rough spots. I was suprised though, the metal is still in great shape!

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.
