    Hi,
    My trailer looks very similar to yours (Cobra). What tire size do you have on yours?
    I am fixing mine this week and need the new tires. The old original never made it to me and the current ones are definitely too small.

    That trailer is HUGE for that boat but it should work OK for you. Hopefully those rusty steel pieces aren't hiding rotten stringers. How much HP is your engine going to have?

    The transom and strigers were redone right before I got the boat. Never saw the water!! Those will be coming off and r going to get powder coated.

    The estimates from the engine shop is 500 hp based on the parts I am using. They are just doing the machine work I am building the motor along with everything else.

    Default New Pictures

    The clear was still drying. I sprayed the clear this morning when it was only 65 and not 90!

    Its not perfect I am going to wet sand it and then lay one more coat of clear over it but it will work for my first restore.
