Got materials yesterday, we had a little hurricane problem. 10" side rails, 6" cross members, it's a little overbuilt for a 5000 pound boat.

Waiting on two 7k torsion axles, I used 235/85-R16 wrangler lt tires, Kodak slip on disk brakes, this will be a tunnel support trailer.

I wonder if I could get some Skater Decals for the trailer from Kinetic Anamation, before it is completed, Ryan does great work.

Looking good Jim! I'll be back at Skater next month, I'll get pics of your new baby for you while I'm there. Yours will probably be finished and out of there before mine.

It would be great to get pictures. Thank you. Skater is the only builder, that I have seen, take boats back in and reconfigure to completely different boats. I really enjoy The freedom to roam the facility, that Pete allows.

double Rigged, double measured, for the basic frame. I know it is correct. Going down to Ft lauderdale Tuesday to take the measurements needed to complete.
