    What's Y'alls Winter Project

    SO...wha'chu guys doing this Winter?
    Mine is refabing a single axle trailer and changing to a dual.
    1st step was just to buy a trailer and found a nice looking 2012....so after a 10 hour drive to Alafrickenbama we made the 10 hour drive home with it.
    Next day after checking things out I find that I've purchased a bonified POS as it was a "tube" trailer and probably only half as thick as it started....(I knew better being it was located so close to SALT water)....but it was so pretty, I was hoping to just change the pad angles and use it!!!
    Welp being the person I am, who doesn't take losses easily, I figure there's enough good stuff on this NOW DONER trailer to just re-do the single axle "channel" trailer.....so away we go!!!!
    The White trailer is the 2012 Allison trailer made by BoatMate, which is now chopped up and in the junk pile!
    The Green is the original which is getting a complete facelift with tandem axles, new paint and SS fenders!
    I'll be keeping the 5000# axle for the rear axle. It has larger disc brakes but also has a 3" drop.
    However by swapping sides and flipping it over there will be no drop and will put the calipers back on the rear of the discs.
    Us Po Boys gotta do what we gotta to do!!!

    Moving home and shop to Texas is our winter project. Titanic hassle, but it'll be great to be out of California.

    Moving to the Temple/Belton area. Anyone from around there?

    I'd like to join the trailer club, please let me know where to send my dues and where I can get a set of rules.

    I was ready to paint my Skater trailer and started making it "cuter" when I realized how floppy the 6" tube trailers are.
    I'm just starting to build a full length truss out of my vertical members to stiffen up the trailer.
    I'm not comfortable using the boat to hold the trailer straight.

    Would you be interested in adopting an elderly man & wife and taking them with you. We have a go-fast boat. :-)

    Fixing things I broke during the summer when there wasn't time to fix them then. Selling off machines I no longer need since shutting down my cabinet shop. Sell off tools and machines out of the fab shop and machine shop that I will not have room for in the new shop. Liquidate a ton of used boat parts, boats, and motors I will not have room for in the new shop. Get current building ready to sell. Get the new shop ready. Other than that not much. And to think I thought I was retired.

    Funny thing about "retirement" = Less time to do more things than you ever had to do when working a 40+ hour week. Or so it seems for me.

    Think my "Honey Do" list got longer or I'm working slower.....maybe some of both.
