      Perrrty good. I see a lot of trailer tongue repair that was caused by jack knifing backing up. watch the antics around a boat launch ramp some time.

        i saw a guy put his trailer up on a dock trying to splash his unit. it was pretty interesting.

          summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

            Got it welded today. I used some 3x3x1/4 alum angle to run back 5 crossmembers and welded it all in. Then i plated the outside of the tongue. It was amazing the overheads ran great considering the trailer is covered in Ohio salt. I just buffed off where i was going to weld where i could. I only have 2 pics because my battery went dead...Bob
