Boat trailer improvements

Jim’s been busy……first he added a bow support…without it….there is nothing to stop the boat when you load it.


and this is the result……..the scratched gel coat is on the list……and that list keeps getting longer.


The guides are permanent.


The fish camp where we want to launch has a short launch ramp. Our neighbor had his 40 ft pontoon boat loaded on a trailer at the same ramp ….the trailer had skids for when the wheels dropped off the end of the ramp…..so now….ours has skids. Should the wheels drop off the end of the ramp…..the skids will let the trailer slide up until the bottom of the tire can roll up the ramp. At least that is how it’s supposed to work. A few more coats of paint and the trailer will be finished.
