trailer repair after wreck

So insurance finally got back in touch and said that they "could pay" $200 on this. WHAT?! I am definitely going to take the trailer to a repair shop to get an estimate to make my point with them. If a total loss on the trailer, it's about $600 for a new one at Academy. If they offered that, I would...

I guess a credit should be taken for removing the b...

New to the forum and boat ownership entirely... Bought a 12' foot 1988 Sears boat this summer to spend more time fishing with my son in the DFW area. Just wanted a simple, lightweight boat and found a deal on it...Finally took it to the lake a few weeks ago for the first time on a church camping tri...
