There is always a cause of most anything and you can be sure if a boat is involved it will be something nasty to repair.
|TAKING A STAB AT TRAILER REPAIR|
So I thought I'd take a stab at it. Can't be that much trouble can it?
I've never seen wood do this in such a grand fashion, but you know the HideAways.
|SEE THROUGH LUMBER INC.|
There's a fair amount of rusting going on as well. The keel board was only held in place by one bracket neither looked healthy. Other than the large cracks the board was not rotted.
|ONE OF THOSE OH S MOMENTS|
This keel board has a secret wish to become a teeter totter. Just not on my boat trailer please.
|NOT A WISE CRACK= COMPAC 23 KEEL BOARD|
The crack was just aft the point of keel contact. On this recovery the keel rested almost a foot further back towards the stern of the trailer.
There was a knot involved in the conspiracy to ruin my day. The good news is we found it before the HideAway took a nose dive
