Ski73, Looking very good. I like. The pix are appreciated.
Noticed the new actuator assy. Do you have a flexible connection for the brake line to accomodate the swing-away?
Great price on atwood 10" brakes at boatfix.com if you need'm.
~$100 / axle. can not beat that. I paid 1/2 that for just the wheel cylinders.

Thanks Plano! For my brakes I went strictly with UFP. They are located about an hour south of me and hooked me up with their latest disc brake creation. It was about 5 times as much as yours, but I did not need to change my actuator tube or my hard lines to accomodate the new set up. UFP is the manufacturer of my OEM drums, so it was an easy conversion.

Edit: Yes, you do use a flexible line from the actuator to the hardline of the trailer

Ok, So I finally finished the trailer this weekend. Here are a few pics of what I have done. Unfortunately it is drizzling outside, so I had to take them while the boat was in the garage, so they are a little tight. No need to worry though, the boat leaves on Wednesday for Spring Break, so I will have plenty of pictures of the boat and other "stuff" on the river!! HA HA!!!

Here is a picture of my repaired, wetsanded, painted and rewetsanded fenders! I cursed at MC the whole time for these things... they accounted for 1/3 of my ENTIRE budget!! My next trailer will be an Extreme with Stainless Fenders!

Here is the pic of my new swing away tongue, jack, winch w/o winch post, and Jet Connex cord (this things is cool!).

Where did you get the swing away tongue or did you have someone make it for you?

I got it from Extreme Custom Trailers/Pivit Hitch. The whole kit is $349. There is a bolt-on kit and a weld on, which is what I have. Their website is pivithitch.com. If you get one, ask for Dave Rogan and he will set you up with everything needed.

Thanks man I think that I am going to do that. Did you put your boat in the water while you did your referb or did you put it on a dolly?
