Re: Rebuilding the trailer from under the boat

Here is new carpet on the aft bunks. Notice a bevel on the top, to match the vee bottom. Even tho they are fixed bunks, there is no need for them to be adjustable. Remember the concerned effort we all put into making the boat aft running bottom straight-flat-true? That same flat running bottom sits ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

The wooden frame with the tennis shoe is the safer device. Thats because steel-on-steel is slick. Jacking with wood is better because wood doesnt slip on steel, as steel-on-steel does. either of those however will not prevent the boat from tipping over; only support at the chines will prevent a tip ...

Re: books on wiring

in my 40 years working with electrical, relays are first suspect part to look at when the circuit dont work.
Took about 10 years to get to the point where relays are the first suspect, then nothing changed my mind the next 30.

Re: books on wiring

Relays work nicely if you want to control several circuits with the ignition switch. They are very common and reliable. They serve as a master switch for many circuits and devices you may want to turn of with your ignition switch. Some can be used to control devices and be controlled on the accesso...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

"A few caveats. I will be using a bunk trailer. I will probably use aluminum for the trailer. I want a tandem axle trailer. I assume that the bunk mounts need to be adjustable in order to get them angled right to meet up with the boat." Depends which bunk mounts you say are adjustable. I'm speaking ...
