I did this a few months back.. I just figured i would post it here... Since then ive got some other new toys for the trailer just aint got them on yet..Still in the pacages just got them last week....

I got a handle that mounts to the trailer.. My boat is centerd pretty decent .. I move it around all the time just by picking up the front of the trailer ..

Also got a lock for the receiver.. And a lock for the latch on the trailer...

Also got end caps for the bow roller.. Its really easy to miss that roller.. Ive scuffed the hell out of my boat... already..


Also put a new set of tires on it ... Finally..

Good shit bro, thanks for sharing the pics. I really like your boat. Your trailer looks a lot like mine. You have rod holders on the boat? http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/dd448/NorthportTroller/Smileys/popcorn.gif

Nice work. Keeping a trailer in top shape will always pay off in the future.

Ya man.. There are 4 on it... .. And i have a bar that i can mount on the back that you can put like 6 more on and troll with.. I usually dont use them thogh... I keep them in a storage bin under the rear seat...

I love my boat... I just couldnt buy a all out fishing boat... Or a bass boat.. And my dad had a fish and ski one time when i was growing up.. And me and him both loved it... So when i seen this one... I was hooked.. It was on craigslist for 4200... I had cash in hand... When i called him he said he had to get rid of it... Said lowest he would take was 3800... I went there at looked at it.. I told him i only had 3 grand on me I was going to have to wait for my dad to meet me in town to give me the rest..

I was actually just waiting for my dad to get there to help me make the right decision.. Because i knew i was going to buy the first piece of shit i looked at lol.... And the guy said.. Sold..... And for 3 grand i didnt have to even think about buying it..... I was throwing money before someone else heard him lol..

And he loaded my truck down with chit... Tubes...ski's... He had like 20 brand new berkly rod holders.. And that trolling bar...nice ladder that goes on the side of the boat..

I love the boat.. The boat is in pretty rough shape.. Its got scratches and stuff in the fiberglass .. but I didnt want a super nice boat.. Cause i knew i was going to be fishing out of it.. And im only 24 .. And not mature enough for something too nice lol
