    trail rite trailers

    Sorry for the hi jack, but it’s sort of related. I have an 81 TR (painted) under a Montauk, I’m rehabbing. I was going to replace all of the hardware, short of the bearing buddy axle, with new parts, so I can use the trailer during the rehab process, ultimately getting a galvanized one down the...

    2 day trip half capacity 16passengers

    I’m afraid your industry is in for a tough season. A lot of disposable income got disposed of. Bunk room with 25 strangers? no thanks. Maybe, when the vaccine gets here.

    Looking at adding a trolling motor to my 17' BW Montauk

    It looks fabulous, and I'd like to do this too, but I see only four screw mounts built into the deck, holding a lot of weight, and the weight is not centered. Do you lash it down when underway? Will it take an offshore pounding? And the thought of adding the weight of two more batteries to...

    DAY FOUR We woke up. Well, you know the rest. We packed up our crap. Ten men doing manly things in a manly way, meant we were anxious for a hot shower, a real toilet, where you didn't have to hold your finger on the button, while you tap the motor with a pair of pliers. And our own beds to...

    DAY THREE Six a.m., yup, you got it, coffee and cigarettes. "Who wants to go fishing?", Roberto yells out to all of us. "If you do, time to get up now." A Fernando fruit bowl to start the day. For the next couple of hours, Roberto took us to a high spot, and we fished for bottom critters...
