WoW, ski73. that's bad a$$. Looks fantastic and ready for action. Looks better'n new. Outstanding!

Regarding my est of $500, Was'nt countin, but since yall bring it up...all figures appx... 150 wheel/tire, 100 bunks (carpet and 2Xs), 100 brake wheel cylinders (4X), 100 rollers and pins, 150 brake acutator, dam that's 6 hunkski there, plus another hunski on paint, plus misc, looks more like $750 plus all the time/effort/lovin put in.

Pride in ownership = Priceless. Again, congrats on finishing the project. Park out a ways to avoid the fender bangers!

Hey, thanks for the nice words! I am so glad to have this project done, it was such a pain in the butt. It took me twice the time I wanted it to and I was in a mad scramble to get the boat back on the trailer so I could use it for Spring Break. I have just started a new project of making removable mudflaps attached to my trailer hitch, to avoid rock chips. I have only towed the trailer about 600 miles since it was finished and i have already found 3 chips!

Big Bump to this thread.....
Sodar - Just had one question regarding the mounting of the winch. Is the winch bolted all the way through the 3x2 tube? I was reading the box on a new one and it seems to mention counter sunk bolts and a plate. I'm still sporting the "bar", but we're getting pretty tired of it so will probably be converting to the Boat Buddy over the winter and will have to fabricate a winch post. I don't even have a winch on the trailer now as it was useless before ('88 Tristar w/ channel frame trailer) and had to remove it when I modified the trailer some five or six years ago for the pivot hitch. I have the same photo of my trailer/boat just clearing the garage door. I had to take off the lower horiz. brace on the door. I have about a 1/2" clearance with the boat/trailer touching the wall.

Thanks for any help. Read alot of the threads on the trailer refurb.

The winch post is boxed, so I drilled all the way through the box. I tapped the side with the winch and and drilled out the back side to allow for nuts, washers and a socket wrench to fit inside the box. Once everything was installed, I put plugs in the holes for a clean look.

Perfect, Thanks for the quick response. I thought about drilling and tapping just the mounting face side of the steel tube, just not sure if that would provide enough threads long term. Like your idea though, it's either that or thru-bolt and maybe some stainless cap nuts. I need to mount the winch like yours probably just so it doesn't interfere with the garage door clearance as it cannot project any farther forward than the bow of the boat. Thanks.
