    Default Fix ded the bottom

    Fixed the hole. It was where the red circle is on the first photo. By the time I ground all the dead glass away it left a hole all the way through about 1" in diameter. Patched it inside then flipped it and patched the outside too. Should oughta do it.

    As long as it was upside down went ahead and straightened the bottom around the intake. The rest of it looked pretty darned good. Seriously considered putting a keel on the boat, but figured I'd try to run it with a straight bottom first and see if it helps at all. Had just enough speedcoat left to finish the job.

    I need to do the trailer while the boat is laid up on the saw horses. Gonna check on some places for sand blasting and powder coating tomorrow. If anybody knows a place for media blasting (good prices) on the west side, I'd appreciate a recommendation? Might end up just having it blasted then paint it myself. I'm no painter, but hell it's just a trailer and I know I can at least cover it with paint. Anything will be an improvment over what it is now.






    Oh yeah this is pretty funny. Check out the lazy MF'ers Christmas tree still laying in the yard. Where are my priorities?

    For the money, PC may be a better bet than paint. My trailers tend to use at least a gallon of paint each.

    My brother PC'd his trailer. Looked good, but in the sun/heat in Arizone it turned pink(PC'd red). Maybe white would be a better color.

    Although I haven't checked into it, I was told $450 to sandblast and powdercoat black for a jet boat trailer at Powder 1 powder coating, El Cajon, CA, 92021, 619-588-9200. They remove the wheels and tape off the spindles, I was told. Maybe it's worth the drive? I know they do great work. I'm not trying to post spam here...

    Thanks for the tips guys. I would go white on the trailer so wouldn't have to worry so much about sun fade. $450 is a heck of a deal. I'd pay that in a heartbeat. Like Cy said, I'd be spending that much for sand blasting and paint to do it myself.

    Sent some emails to powder coaters here locally and I guess I'll see what comes back estimate-wise.
