Re: La Tortuga...updated 09-25-13

OKAY I have the hitch installed, I cut out a sq 2-1/2 hole and inserted tube and welded up (I used the bottom of the bumper for support and install a 2-1/2 wide pc of 1/4 steel 8inches long as a support....plenty strong for the trailer



had to burn off the powder coating




You can see the burnt paint from welding the brace it

Pulled out the race vehicles so I can load them up with all the kayaks this evening (still have to wash them)



The only trailer it will have is the kayak trailer, with 4 boats I just pick it up and pull it everywhere tongue wt. is maybe 50 pounds


I will post a picture before I head out in the morning
