Yes, the trailer is next. Plans for it include:

1) new carpeted bunks (I already have material for this)
2) put on new bow stop for the front
3) add side bunks. Iam going to accomplish this by welding on some 1x1 steel swaure tubing at the same angle as the sides of the boat with some carpeted bunks on them as well.
4)new seal in passenger side bearing
5)paint with black enamel tractor paint from Tractor Supply Company

yes those are bearing buddies. They came with the trailer!

Id like to get some new fenders, but its $40 for them.
Alls good now thanks. Right on I get to see your trailer transform now, sweet. Side bunks are a great thing to have when all alone or not easy loading in the wind or current, nice. Do the fenders for sure, or can ya straighten them out ya figure? Right on I love my bearing buddies makes life a little simpler lol. Looking at your trailer tounge, it looks to me like you could get away with shortening it quite a bit, no? The winch mount post could be shortened alot to. Get some pics on the water today for me, love to see it in it's natural element.
