Yep, it is in the garage up north...contemplated about getting a new motor or getting it fixed but did not pull the trigger either way. With the lake levels so low now, it did not make sense for invest in a new outboard as the chances of damaging the motor again would be too high...


Found a 94 190 project boat and got it for a great price...just needs alot of elbow grease...only 429 hours, LT1 and 1:1.

They were just screwed from the underside using #8 x 1-1/4" stainless screws. Alot easier than I expected to say the least...

Nice! Now get going on your Trailer!!

The new board looks a little tall. Are you going to sand it down a bit to get even with the rest of them.....or is it just my eyes?!?

Nothing like some antibiotics. Just did the strep thing a couple weeks ago myself.

Hey, if it wasn't for you Jeff, my to-do list would be half of what it is! Quit giving me ideas!

Yes, the new slat is a little bit taller but I am just going to leave it...you can't really tell by touch that it is higher but in the picture it looks alot worse than it is...

I found a good welding company near the house that works on semi trailers and heavy duty machinery so for them to do the swing tongue should not be a problem. Just have to order the kit.

Do I need to get a new actuator and master cylinder for the tongue or just a new master cyclinder first and see how it works out?

I did manage to get a list going of things that I need to do once we get the boat out of storage. Actually have a few items ordered already. Had to replace the oil cooiling hoses and the battery on the 2500hd last night so I am trying to keep up with things this week.

Yea, that "free" trailer is costing me a lot but its fun working on it!

I didn't really want to mess with the actuator/master cylinder. I figured it was close to being shot anyways...

Oh, and I went to measure the length of my main hydraulic hose (13' by the way) and I hear a "ding". Look down and see the last 10" piece of that line sitting on the floor! That brake line was definitley on it's last leg!

If you did want to do it in steps, you could get a dual axle disc actuator and then buy just one pair of disc brakes. Later on, you could add brakes to your second axle. I asked the vendor if it would work for one axle (even though it was for 2) and he said yes.....

Looks good though and will make a big difference if you plan on towing alot this summer.

Which are you going with? The metal or the plastic?

I think I am going to get the current surge brake system working as best I can and replace whatever is needed and if budget allows after everything else, switch to the better braking system.

We never had to do anything with the surge brakes on the BF200 so the trailer components and how everything come apart and back together is gonna be a learning process this spring.
