    Default Fix rusty trailer or ?????

    So I just recently bought another boat. I got a good deal on a hydrasports 185. The boat is fine but the trailer is rusted bad. Should i try fixing the trailer or try and find a used one for a decent price? Click image for larger version.

    If you attempt a repair, you'll need at least two five gallon buckets of JB Weld.


    Seriously....... pull that trailer to the recycle center and leave it there.

    Buy a new/newer galvanized trailer with leaf springs and EZ Lube/SureLube spindles.
