Did you kill the hair dryer?

Put the water pump impeller back in, and after hours/days of trying to break loose the rear engine mount bolts, my dad and I finally got the engine aligned with the prop shaft. Not much else left to do... He wants to test it out while I'm at work one of these nights, then (fingers crossed) we hope to get our first ski outting Saturday morning.

Lake test yesterday. Stereo upgrades, fat sack, new impeller and un-winterization successful. Wash, polish and wax complete today. Ready for lake time.

Windy weather and in bound storms had me take a look at my trailer brakes cuz occasionally they locked up on the port side after launching the boat... 18 year drums a bit out of round causing issue.. order to etrailer for 2 new drums and then I added 4 new LED tail lights to get free shipping.

Will post pics when installing... and after - wanted to do the tail lights in LED anyway so I got 4 take me over $150.00

Trailer almost fully restored. Brake system fully restored no just some cosmetic thing and it will be like new.

Great way to rationalize new LED lights. Honest honey, I couldn't afford not to.

They would indeed. You could buy three with tires and sell yours off individually.
