Last day of the year :cry: pulled the bigger skiff due to upcoming weekend demands and pre-hunting scouting trips.

Trailer - at least the back half, wheels and axle - was all cleaned up, galvy coated in spots that were rusted, then painted with Pettit 'Trailer Coat', which works really good from experience, especially with saltwater-use trailers.

I take it slow towing, but my small Toyota SUV 4-banger pulls the rig along nicely. Ah well, if all goes well during the season ... it is just a dunk in ... and pull out.

oh well, in a couple of months, you can cover the rig with plastic tarp
and put a heater under it and finish it for next spring.

Did you refurb the hubs too ?

Having grown up in the Frozen North (Chicago) and then moving to Texas, I could no longer put up with having my boat idle for five or six months.

Since I don't hunt (not since age 16 anyhow) I would go stir crazy during a snowed-in Winter.

Sorry to see you have to haul her. If you have a place to work, I guess you can get lots of things done over the cold spell. Good luck.

Now you have more time to help on this site. richg99

Since you redid the back half of the trailer wouldn't that be a butt lift?
