Boat Trailer “Fun”Posted: July 2, 2015
Boat trailers! When you have something made of metal, wire and rubber, and you continuously dip it in and out of salt water, the effect on all things mechanical, electrical and structural should be expected. Compound that with lack of use over the last few months due to work, coaching and book stuff, and well…you are spending the crab and salmon opener skinning knuckles and muttering four-letter words.
But it’s not too bad, really. Mostly what my buddy Sweeney would refer to as “deferred maintenance.” Couple of tires, a few trips to town, some hub maintenance and a little electrical issue. A few more choice words. Some small victories.
Once I have the trailer squared away, I can move on to making sure the boat itself works… All in all, I’d rather be fishing.
