It's not the most perfect trailer for The Boat, but, as I said before, there are compromises...
and the price was Right!  I gave $250 for it...
 



The Trailer

Now I'm modifying it to accept my Much Longer Boat.  The extension you see, above, was done the first
work day.  Today, January 19th, I gave the Extension Project a full day.  I don't have any Images, yet... but I
welded in two cross braces and welded my Channel Iron Extension to the existing Box Tubing.  I welded backing
to remount the fenders.  Tomorrow, I hope to get the brackets welded in place to mount two carpet covered 2X6
Runners for the boat sit on.  I purchased a can of Galvanized Paint cover all the unpainted surfaces.
