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.

Well it's been a while but I'm still here! I have been busy with work. But I did finish, well almost finish the trailer and boat. I sanded down the whole boat the inside and out 2 coats of primer and 2 top coats. I primed the trailer, installed the trailer lights. I installed the flooring in the rear section and did put carpet on it. I still need to carpet the front section but the paint was not dry. Well what do you guys think of my new project?

Nice work TSharp.

It does look like you have lost claim to it. As said, win some lose some.

Last Thursday I was given a 1999 40hp Johnson outboard. They told me it wasn't running. After a took it out my truck Friday I cleaned the carbs and put outboard oil in the spark plug holes so I could lubricate the cylinders. I didn't receive the control box but I jumped the solenoid and I turned the engine over. I removed the plugs so the oil would come out. I then replaced the plugs attached the fuel line and muffs with the hose, then fired the engine up. It ran like a champ, water pumping like it should. I let it idle for around 15 minutes or so. I removed the fuel hose so burn the fuel out. Here are a few pictures before and after. My grandson and I then started sanding with 220 grit, 2 coats of primer, and 2 top coats sanding between coats. Still have the hood to apply the second coat.

I had a chance this afternoon to finish the hood. 2 clear coats sprayed. I just have to wax the engine and hood. I did check on decals but I will have to order them. I think it's coming along great.
