You're just bragging that you're in the sunny south now, and most of us are hunkering down for the !?!?!?! inevitable winter. Well, things could be way worse here in Ontario. We had our first snowfall this past Thursday...Barrie had about 2 inches (The snow belt of Ontario) but it has since melted away. In fact, it was warm and sunny enough at the beginning of the week that they could start to re-shingle my roof. I finally pulled my dock in yesterday.....sunny and sort-of-warm......and I brought my final seaflea home from the cottage. The great thing about winter is you can start planning for the next season.
Along with the many boats and motors I have to fix over the winter I am also looking at modifying one of my trailers to handle four boats. I was able to pick up a set of 14" trailer rims for $20.00 and some decent tires for $30.00. The old tires on my trailer were those small ones on 12" rims...not enough to handle the additional weight I would have with the extra boats. In my dream world, I want to extend the trailer from its current 10 feet to 24 feet. That way I can load two seafleas end-to-end on the lower deck and stack two more boats on an upper deck. The single axle is rated at 3500 lbs...I figure 4 seafleas might total 400lbs each with motors. Anyway.....I'll be planning for that when the snow is flying.
