I agree on the galvanized box section, I would also make sure the wall thickness is substantial, something like 3mm or 1/8. On my trailer I made all the loose parts and then had them 'hot dipped galvanized'. It is a common practice hear on the coast with boat trailers. The whole frame is also dipped...
I am preparing to start on the the GF14. I have had the plans for ever, but wanted to finish the GV15 first, which I have now done. The GF14 is for quick trips to the river, it is also convenient as we do not need all the safety equipment and licences etc for a boat that is under 15ft and not powere...
