Hauled it 550 miles from Salinas to Las Vegas. Took 11 1/2 hours, but nothing went wrong (unlike the trip from LV to Salinas to pick the boat up -- my starter solenoid crapped out lol). We had just put new wheels and tires on the trailer, so I checked my lug nut torque about every 100 miles, along with air pressure. Had to reset the torque on the nuts after the first 75 miles (several were off by about 10 lbs) but after that the torque was very stable. Air pressure was pretty consistent too. Also checked temp of hubs by hand -- both equal every time I checked. And not too hot.

And best of all, the boat fits in the garage with about 1 inch to spare!

I hired a neighborhood kid for $50 to do mine. One coat of Seapower on the trailer and bottom followed by two coats of wax. Other than it taking about double the time it should have because he kept going inside to "get a glass of water" aka check out the wife, he did a great job and I got to work on other stuff while he did it!

Yep, Fellow board member is helping. He's cutting from some type of plastic engraving stock. It will look pretty much factory.
