A few years ago I made a purchase of a 1957 Crosby Sweptfin boat on an almost brand new Shorelander trailer. While this set up looks ok. Its time to put a vintage trailer under the Sweptfin. The trailer of choice will be a 1959 OB-40A with some modifications. This trailer has seen a much better life BUT as anyone reading this knows these gems can be brought back to like new condition. To start with this trailers tongue was rotten out on the underside. It appears that mice like to boat to. They had the tongue jammed with material and over years of setting and getting wet thus the damage. Next the plan is to change this trailer over to tear drop fenders with the flight light extensions on top. A good sand blasting, epoxy primer, some welding, straighenting, painting, and a pile of new parts. As this project goes along pictures will be posted of what has been done. Thanks D Pictures of the assembled trailer project were taken for future reference. Then the trailer was disassembled every part and bolt that could be taken offt was. She was stripped. But you still have to be able to tow her to the sand blaster. So once at the blaster the tongue, trailing arms, and the rims were then taken off. This trailer will now be blasted and then the blaster primes the fresh metal with an epoxy primer. Blasting and priming will generally cost about three hundred dollars.
