Some Trailer info on the boat thread here

*Still fabricating the Licence Plate holder though and i need to fab a new winch bracket once the boat is back on the trailer so I can tell where it should be mounted.

I may add a spare tire bracket as well.

I may add some padding to the goal posts as well.
