Stayed off the waterways to protect the 205 - so inspected bearings and adjusted up the brakes on the trailer... sorry no pictures...way to boring of a project. Cuz of the extra warm weather there was some crud in the backing plates from the stuff that icky green weed and algae that has been filling up the boat ramps.

oh and cursed by boat buddy for leaving black marks on the bow...

Replaced bearings and brakes on the trailer. I hope there's a special circle of suffering for whoever decided to have different sized inner races and seals on the braking vs. non braking axles. I had four complete sets of bearings, then had to make a special run to pick up different sized seals and races to fit the braking axles. But of course you can't buy the races separately, so I had to purchase new bearings.

Neighbor threw out a Jacuzzi and these stairs with it. I though they would be perfect for behind the boat in the shop! Put some casters on to move around easy!

Changed steering cable (17' instead of the original 15' : got the wrong part because I was in a hurry)
Changed the perfectpass master module (original stargazer died for unknown reason)

You are going to like the way it steers with the new cable.

MR. Safety says.........hope you put brakes or have chocks for the casters so that when you take that first or last steps off them steps they dont slide away!!!!

Nice steps and great idea.

Changed the switched 12v ignition wire on my stereo to constant 12v, so the radio stays on regardless of key position. Have to turn off stereo by itself now. Installed a bluetooth adapter to my Alpine stereo, wireless streaming of music from the iphone.
