Yeah, finally some nice progress!

To get the boat finished and to the water, we have to get it on the trailer. If you recall, I bought a used trailer last year, but it was going to take some modifications. Beyond removing the "upper rack" that it had, we decided to beef up the side rails a bit to hold that larger boat.

Yesterday my Dad and I spent several good hours getting the doubler/truss pieces welded in place. Came out pretty well (my status as a newbie welder not withstanding).

The addition is that upper rail, including the sloped pieces tying it into the lower rails at the back (stern?).
