Teal,
I suggest you replace the drum brakes with new disc brakes. they look nicer and dry out better after dunking. plus work better. you would need to replace the actuator also. the actuator is different for disc than the one for drum. they are likely UFP brand. I did this on my 93 trailer and it works and looks great. nice restore thread, love to see pics of both trailer and boat when done.

Kemah is about a 3.5 hour drive for me and some people were wondering why take it so far. Friend of the family and he is a MASTER at gelcoat work. Here are some of the pictures he took during the process of repairing the fiberglass and gelcoat.





Is that a Hydrostream Palque in the last picture in the back ground next to the dart board?? I had a Vegas XT, and loved it. Actually I miss her quite a bit, now that I am back in single outboard boats.

Not sure what you are talking about in the last pic. That was the fiberglasser's shop in kemah.

Got the trailer torn down to the state that it is going to get blasted in. I have the axle off and the leafs off the axle but I cant for the life of me get the drums off.

Do you have a link to these disc brakes Mayo? And what was the cost when said and done?
