Watch. Someone will buy it and then start a thread on here about being ripped off by the seller - who didn't disclose that there were issues with it!

Thanks, Lou.

I didn't see a brand name on mine (my old one was a Tie Down), and this one has disks. I'll be using it twice per year to launch and retrieve, so I'm not too worried about a top...

The solenoid was bad on my old one, and I had to lock it out to launch. So I think you're saying that the hydraulic pressure of the brake system is what does it - keeps it pushed back? I was...

OK, thanks. So those are working as they are supposed to.

What keeps the trailer from actuating them when the boat isn't pushing on it? They are not on when it sits still.

Ventura Trailer Surge brakes

I found that my 2007 Venture 3 axle trailer brakes are not functional. I have taken apart the surge actuator, and wonder if anyone can answer a couple questions. First - are these a serviceable,...

That's a pretty old hull - even more reason to get it checked out. For reference, if it wasn't a rebuild the 2012 ETech would book at twice the value of the hull. Because it is, then that drops it...

226 or 228? I had a 226 and it was a great boat. Nice size to trailer (even solo), and handles water very very well. It's heavy, so you burn a fair amount of gas for a 22 - especially with a 2...

I did 92 mph on GPS a couple times in this little girl, and will go to my grave believing that is very fast for a 22 ft. monohull. It cruised at 65 like it was nothing, and burned very little...

I haven't looked at the numbers lately (wife does the books), but IIRC our $1.5M umbrella costs us < $300/yr. Could be slightly off now, but still - in my world, that a no-brainer as far as felling...

Yeah, I'd say if you aren't going to donate it as a write off, then fixing it may be most profitable. Most fun too!:)

This is Deutsche Bank talking, not the US.
I think that it's just as likely that not driving will be seen in more of a "carbon credit" sort of light than as a reason to levy additional taxes on us.
