I didn’t get to the trailer today. I got home late and it was dark.
That time change on the weekend really changes things. Even driving around the city at 5 pm is more crazy. It’s the rush minute or nearing the end of it and there are lots of people rushing home from work. I saw 2 accidents on one stretch of road! I never see accidents on that road…
I did get to the hardware store and get the bolts I need to put the trailer back together.
Tomorrow I am going to pick up the carpet for the bunks I’m making. (It’s also going in my office on the floor.)
I will cut the wood for the bunks and glue and screw them together so they are ready. I’m rethinking the use of the rollers at the back. I have the wood so I may as well make bunks for their too. I will make them so they are a bit smaller and fit on the double roller holder. So there will be double bunks at the back. Just shorter ones. They will support the boat better than rollers and I won’t have to mess around with it next summer when I’m redoing the bottom on the new boat.
The shape of the bunks will be like this T. Pretty simple to make. I’ll post photos of the front ones as they will be a little bit different. Still the T shape but the I will start at the top on the left side of the — and finish on the right side near the bottom. It’s just better that way for how I have the posts set.
I’m only going to carpet the — parts on each. This so the bunks don’t rot so fast due to the soggy carpet covering them. I’ll throw a coat of paint on before I put the carpet on too.
