I think the plastic....at least for the mainline. If I can get inside the tubes for each axle crossing, I may also do those in plastic. If it's on the outside, metal or stainless.

I'm also wondering if I got two mainlines and split it at the tongue, I wouldn't have to cross on the outside. Just "tee" down to each actuator. It might just work.

It's now snowing and cold for the next few weeks so I won't be able to really study the trailer until then.

Funny. I was thinking the same thing when your question came up the other day. You'd double the brake fluid needed, but other than that, I don't see why 2 "mains" would not work.

Yea, it might look cleaner but we'll see. I'll have to do some measuring. It's just hydraulics so extra length really shouldn't be an issue. Guess that engineering degree really does come in handy sometimes!

I just emailed them with a picture of the platform and where the broken slat is and what year boat, etc.

You can either send them a check and they will UPS out the slat or they can do a COD to your location.

They were really nice people to work with.
Rockman, thanks for the info on Teak World. I have the same issue as the one you just repaired. Great job by the way. How much was the slat? After you removed the scews it just came out?

Slat plus shipping...under $50 total. It just needed to be trimmed down on the ends...top and sides were routered over to match the current platform's edges. So very easy remove and replace.

Yes, the platform was not glued together...just screwed. Some of the new platforms may be glued in certain areas.

Last night, I got some longer stainless screws for the ends to secure down the transom saver and I just took the drill and tightened up all the screws throughout the entire platform. It is really solid now given it is 19 years old and was never cared for.

What's on the list?!?

Do like me and buy a set of tires for Suburban at Discount and get a $100 Visa (used for trailer brakes). Then, bought the trailer wheels from Discount...hey, guess what, another $100 Visa (going to brake lines)!
