Re: 16' Stardust Rebuild

WOW.... as someone else said, THAT IS TIGHT.... From the looks of the pictures it looks as if you only have an inch or two clearance going under that bridge.. Is that accurate, if not, just how much clearance do you have?

Re: Sun Tracker 18DLX Party Barge and Lake Lanier in GA

I think you would "probably" be okay with the 18 footer on your lake, but I think you would be happier and a bit more comfortable on at least a 20 footer. I regularly boat on Caddo Lake ( Louisiana & Texas ). I'ts a big lake, but not quite as big as yours. I think Caddo Lake is just under 40 square ...

Re: latest trailer debacle...and this happened

Sorry about your tire.. I had basically the same thing happen to me several years back.. tooling down the highway around 55 mph and heard a loud bang and then felt the back end of the rig pulling hard to the right. Got off on the shoulder and discovered I had a blow out on the trailer. Off hand can'...

Re: Recarpet bunks by jacking the boat up

Fiddlebick... I like that idea of jacking the boat up.. That never entered my mind when I redid my bunks. We put the boat in the lake, tied it up and my wife sat there under the bimini drinking lime-a-rita's and reading her book while we did the bunks back at the boat storage building. Flanker.. I d...

I've been a member of this forum for 10 or 11 years now and I've made some pretty good friends on these boards - I truly ...

Re: Cover support

Looks good Craig... nice job. Only place I'd be a little concerned about is at the front end, just inside the front gate.. From the pics looks like a low spot where water / snow could pool.. but maybe it's just the vantage point of the picture.

Re: Cover support

Craig, that new cover support system you put on your boat is sweet.. looks like it took a bit of work and I'm assuming you would just leave all the attached pvc right where it is when you take the boat out.. Don't think I'd want to take it all apart everytime I wanted to take the boat out... looks g...

Re: New Boat Delivery Schedules

I can vouch for this. Our lake is much busier than normal and full of people that don't know what a no wake zone means or how to backup a trailer :biggrin2 Of course I am being patient because they are having fun and I was in their shoes 30 years ago. I think there are folks who take a couple lawn ...

Re: Buying a standalone trailer?

[/quote] Yeah I would hate that as well. How much should a person expect a trailer to cost? I got my eye on 2 other toons that just popped on the market that are both very reasonable, but neither come with trailers.

Re: Buying a standalone trailer?

Rabbit.... I think you made the wise decision by waiting til next season....like others have pointed out, there are always some boats sold without a trailer, but I think by and large the majority of pontoon purchases usually include the trailer. Would hate for you to invest in a trailer now and then...
