Did you think I had forgotten all of you? I didn't. I have been busy with my little boat project
. You will be very proud of me, I am anyway. With no experience at any of this I have taken my little boat project
, which turned into a trailer project first, and we are now on the water
First, the trailer. Whoever worked on it last was even less a mechanic
than I am. They put the wrong size bearing in, which totally chewed up the race
. When all said and done I ended up replacing the bearings, hub, wheels, new tires, marine
grease instead of the automotive grease they were using, and put on buddy bearings. And I did it myself! Yeah me. Then there was the title issue... there wasn't any, and the previous owner lived 5 hours away. Well, I got that taken care of too.
Then I went to work on the boat. Again another proud moment for me, this time with pictures. I took some sage advice and opted to oil
the wood instead of varnishing it. I am not done, but the worst is looking much better.
