Looking for a old trailer, nothing speacial, something with rollers or bunkers, solid frame, and working winch. plan on making a rolling dock lift for my 16' low pro. if anyone has any advice on how to do it cheaper it would be appreciated. figured i would use an old trailer b/c it would already be built, the dimentions would be correct, i would only have to install guide rails, and load bearing poles to hold it out of the water. reason for this project is i plan on painting my boat with a nice gel coat and as i understand it, that type of paint job doesn't like to sit in the water all season. so what i plan to do if i can find one is take the axel off, tires off, lighting and wiring off, and just use the frame and winch to house it during the time i am not at the cottage. agian any advice is more then welcome.
