Updates from another day at the workshop!

thatsmrmastercraft, only if I was closer, but the Atlantic is a long way to cross!

Should I go for 205x65R16 ou 215x65R16?

Burbon66, thanks for your help, I think I have all the measurements I need.

That is really taking shape. I would go with the 215 for the extra capacity.

And I could have sold you fenders and LED lights too.

I'm tempted!

Maybe you can send them to a friend of mine that lives in NJ. Do you have pics of the fenders?

This fender has a 1" radius lip on the front and a 90-degree-right-angled lip on the back to provide flush mounting to your trailer. The 90-degree-right-angled lip on the back side of the fender points down towards the under side of the fender. There are no pre-drilled holes.

Specifications:

Single Axle Fender
Material 16-Gauge Steel
Length 28 Inches
Height 10 Inches
Width 8 Inches


Single Axle Trailer Fender

More updates,

Anyone knows if the inner bunks run parallel, or are they slightly inwards towards the front?

As far as I can tell, the inner bunks are about 2" closer together at the front. Measuring at the inside edge of each bunk, at the rear is 20", and at the front it's 18".

It's dark outside but I did grab a flashlight and a tape measure and got a rough idea.
I can get on a creeper and get a more definite measurement if you need it... tomorrow.

Here are a few pics of mine right after I re-did the bunks. They don't really look 2" closer, but over an 8' board and with the angle of the photo, it's hard to see. They have a definite bow to them too. Even the rear has a slight bow to it.

Thanks Jeff!

I was going with trial and error with the bunks, but if you can provide me a couple of measurements it would be great!

If you have the time and if it's not asking too much, can you provide the distance from inside the bunks at front, middle and rear on the outer bunks and the distance from inside the bunks at middle on the inner bunks (rear is 20'' and front 18'').

Again if not asking too much the "A" and "B" measurements of each plate fixing the bunks (except for the outer bunks rear plate) and "C" for the outer bunks rear plate.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Jeff,

I got an email with your post but it wasn't published on the topic, don't know why!

I do confirm the A and B for the inner bunks, if you and you "secretary" have the time and patience to measure it.

Going to buy the carpet for the bunks!

Thanks

? That's weird. I wonder why it didn't post up? Glad you got the message in e-mail at least.

I have a sheet drawn up to make it easier for my wife (secretary ) to jot the numbers down when she gets home. I'll probably have to post them later from our hotel. As soon as the kids get home from school, we're hittin' the road (3 hour drive).

OK, I see the post made it up on my end.

OK... Lots of measurements.
I'm assuming both Rt and Lt are the same, so I only measured one side.

Inner bunk front:
A= 16-1/4"
B= 3-5/8"

Inner bunk middle:
A= 21"
B= 5"

Inner bunk rear:
A= 20-7/8"
B= 6-3/4"


Outer bunk front:
A= 10"
B= 4-7/8"

Outer bunk middle:
A= 10-1/2
B= 5-1/2

Outer bunk rear:
C= 2"


Between inner bunks:
Front - 17" (not 18")
Middle - 19"
Rear - 20"

Between outer bunks:
Front - 37" (hard to measure)
Middle - 39" (hard to measure)
Rear - 39"

Between the outer bunks was hard to measure because with the boat on the trailer, I was eyeballing it 10" below the bunk because of the keel being in the way. Even so, I was pretty careful to get within 1/2" I'd say.

These measurements are from a factory trailer so I hope they work out with what you've built.

Hope these help. I'll be away from the trailer for a few days so if you need something checked or another measurement, it'll be Monday afternoon before I could look at it again.
