    Well with multiple boats and the need for moving them around, that price isn't absurd but how do you support the other boats when the valet isn't installed? I guess the old cinder block trick is an easy fix.

    They were making those valets for aircraft back in 2009. Pretty slick deals.

    Maybe you tinnies already do this, but could you make the ski locker removable to inspect for moisture "down-under"? Rivnuts would make removal pretty easy.

    I know everyone in the fiberthreads say, do it right and you'll never have leaking issues, but the rivets are a different deal right?

    My brother's Olympic had two small storage boxes in the rear transom like you are thinking. I really like that idea. He took the lid off replaced it with a teflon cutting board for cutting bait on.

    Alternatively, could you mount a folding board spanning the transom area? When you aren't under way you can flip in out and stand for casting.

    Nice looking setup. I'll climb aboard if you don't mind.

    Yah, that Trailer Valet is the bomb for me. I'm always having to move my boats around and hitching them up is a breeze. The cost is so absurd the only way I can justify owning it is that I can easily swap it over to all my other boat trailers

    Holly Schnikes that trailer valet is awesome. I like the fact you can buy mounting brackets for each trailer then move the valet to the one you need it on. Nice!
    And take it off before you get to the ramp,..

    Sure thing some azzhat will steal it if you don't,...

    Expensive? That is all kinds of crazy for that trailer valet. I'm sure it is a game changer compared to the silly trailer Jack's everyone else pedals but as flimsy as they are, they still work fine for this cheap guy. I don't have the area that you have to push mine around though. Just in and out of the garage is it for me.

    Yah, I think I first saw the Boat Buckles on one of the threads around here, probably yours WM. I bolted those up on the Islander trailer and man, what a awesome addition! I'm usually pretty efficient at the launch but those even cut my time way down. They seriously make things a bunch more convenient, I'll never go back to conventional straps.

    Now, just for comparison.....I have the Boat Buckle brand on the Islander and I went with the Reese brand here on this one. They are both the same basic function but they operate just a little different. I think I like the Boat Buckle operation just a lil better. I feel like these retractable straps are really a game changer.

    The other game changer is the Trailer Valet. Holy moly is it expensive but wow has it made my life so much easier getting hooked up! It moves the Islander around like butta.

    Yup, guide on's and a set of decals and ready to ride, looking forward to that day

    Looking good alright! Nice to have the trailer work in the rear view mirror, we all love that chore

    You're gonna love those boat buckles if you haven't had them on a trailer yet, I have them bolted on 2 of my trailers. The stainless ones are a bit spendy but well worth every penny.

    Trailer is done!










    New paint, galvanized wheels, tires, stainless lugs, plus spare, rollers, winch strap, LED lights/wiring, coupler, bunks, retractable ratchet transom straps and a Trailer Valet. I have yet to bolt up the guide on's but that will happen after the boat goes back on and I can fit them properly. I'll prolly throw on some Sea Nymph decals too.

    So yah, trailer is DONE!

    Great work on the trailer there JAS! Looking good. What will you use to get those pesky "racing stripes" off of the side of the SN prior to paint, I am assuming that you are removing them....

    Polished aluminum would look awesome like a mirror man. Getting it there and keeping it there is another story.
