Good deal on the trailer. I have one that looks just like it. I have to narrow my axle a bit for my gate though. :lol:

Thanks Uncle D!!
The trailer was for a Basscat boat, the coupler had been replaced, the tounge shortened and the winch stand was modified. I am going to put a folding coupler on it and build a new winch stand.

It's looking good! I bet it feels good to get back to working on it after a couple years hiatus. I'll be following your build closely as this is one of the plans I'm looking at building.

OK....I'm getting old and can't remember or find it on the lamination schedule where does the "Woven tape 4": 50 yards" go? :help:

Thanks,
Will

Typically the biax tape is for structural elements - chines, keel, frames. The woven tape is usually used topsides, cabins, consoles, seatboxes...

That's funny. If I were you, that'd lead me to some interesting boat names:
inamorata
doxy
Mistress
Paramour
cocotte
tart

note - I'm just having fun, this is certainly not meant to offend.

Wade that doesn't offend me at all. Actually gives me some great ideas: Finally FREE, URalimony, She Got the House, Bankrupt, Freeatlast, Current Wife.....Ha!!
Now that's some funny stuff right there!

Nice find on the Trailer.

I've got the reverse chine the shape I like and I think I just need to mix up one more batch of QuickFair and the bottom will be ready for its first coat of primer.
