Kayak trailer completed

Postby mb82 » Tue Aug 03, 2010 3:19 pm

It is done. Some Angle Iron duct tape round tube and pipe insulation and my kayak trailer is done.

With 4 kayaks on it.

After spending all morning trying to get the trailer lights to work we figured out it was a blown fuse in the trailer wiring harness( the '97 grand has a funny harness that needs power to it) Of course we had run all new wiring in the trailer and played with the ground for ~1 hour before we figured out what it was.

Actually it is the trailer for the Scotch Yacht. I bought that one a few years ago from Northern Tool and bolted it together in a few hours.

Nice 4 pack. they nest on there pretty well.
should last, since it won't get dunked in brine.

Thats the problem for the trailer it does from time to time while it is being used for the Scotch Yacht. Really it is holding up well and the powder coating job is actually surviving which I am surprised. Did bend the rear crossmember this shad season so I need to replace that, hammered it fairly strait then painted the area black( see first pic) Probably will replace it in the next year or so with something way overkill, I am thinking 1/4in thick steel maybe stainless if I can afford it :twisted:
