Default Not another project

Well it didn't take long, I started a new project this afternoon a trailer for a 16' flat boat. I used some square galv. tubing I had laying around the shop. Next I will bring the tongue home tomorrow and will have to buy the clips that hold the leaf springs.

I added the tongue and made the brackets for the axle. I need to finish the welding and purchase 2 tires and rims. T, I picked up a 16' Southfork flat boat for a good prices. That is the reason building the trailer. Next finding or rebuilding a motor for the boat.

I finished the welding this afternoon. I also applied 2 coats of RC99 to the brackets, leaf springs and axle. I place it on top of the trailer to measure for the U bolts. Still need to order my tires and rims.

Shaping up nicely ! Where can that RC 99 be purchased ? I have searched but come up with nothing. Does it possibly go by another name?

I did a good bit of work this afternoon on my trailer. My tires and rims came in, but the weather was so bad the last couple of days. Today I welded the brackets holding the fenders and bolted them down. I applied 2 coats of RC-99, I'll prime them later when I finish the welding. I will put the trailer on hold because SHRIMP SEASON OPEN MONDAY!!!!!!!!

Thanks Pop Pop jones. I been having that mariner for 5 years sitting there. My son cleaned the carb and removed the controls and installed a tiller handle now it runs when IT wants to. Must have a wire or something not correct. I would say pulling my hair but I don't have much left.

It's been a while I have been busy at work lately. But today I finished the bunkers, installed them to the trailer frame. I may put the joe boat on it so I can place the winch bracket and the hitch.

Today I put the joe boat on the trailer. I used a come-a-long and a chain. Not as young as I used too. But after a few minutes I had it on the trailer. I then place the console just for looks to see the proper placement. I going to think about it before I decide.
