Put it in you driveway and fill it with water and watch for the leak. Many of us have done it.

Make sure its level so you can test all the rivets. Be careful not to fill it too much and compromise the trailer or the hull. The trailer isnt normally designed to hold the boat and a ton of extra weight. JMO.
