Guilty also.... I graze too much when I am there and waiting on my girlfriend. Pretty common to end up with a cart full from sporting goods :roll:

:idea: Just food for thought on your trailer, I am sucker for 4" grinder with a 60 or 120 grit flap disc. Pretty much I figure if a man has a hammer and a grinder with flap discs we can do it all!
Did not think of that...thanks for the advise !

I did get the trailer powerwashed this weekend, and will try to work on it this week, but I am getting married on Saturday, then off to Ft. Lauderdale for the honeymoon for a week! So boat progress will remain slim to none. :roll:

Be safe and be sure to hit the strip on A1A in Fort Lauderdale. Once you're there, you'll want to find Sunrise Blvd and head East. As you get closer, you'll see signs "A1A & Beaches"... lived there for a LONG time.

Thanks BB! I know the condo is on A1A and Oakland on the beach so we wont be far 8) Is there any spots to visit or things to do that you would recommend? (non tourist opinion)

First I used Marine Tex Epoxy for my cracks/leaker spot....which ends up being some HARD stuff! Then covered it allllll in SF Black!!! That was fun. Especially when it started hardening during the last 20% of the job...Ill be faster next time.

Boat back on trailer!

Then got it inside the garage and ripped the old transom out. Not in too bad of shape and will work nicely for a template.
