    :sad2: Greetings from the Lone Star family now here in AZ. It was a long haul from North Carolina but we are here and in trouble. My boat is a 15 ft '87 skeeter bass boat that I picked up in NC. Now with age comes rust and boy did that trailer have rust. Well not to list all my heart aches that damn rust bucket of a trailer broke in half on the middle support rail and now my blue gill is sitting on the axle. I am trying to find a new trailer without spending an arm and a leg on one. I'm located in Yuma and Somerton area(don't ask) if anyone has any info on where I could go or look it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for the website, however I think it would cost me more to ship it out here to AZ then it is worth. I appreciate it though and thanks for the response to my tread.

    I would start by conttacting a boat shop or marina near you. They may know of someone who has a boat that sits in slip some where and dosen't need there trailer anymore. That will at least get you started.:0a26:

    Thanks for the name Gary I'll give it a shot. Poor old Blue Gill looks sad just sitting in the drive way. Hell I've been seeing all the pictures everyone's been posting and I'm itching to try my luck.
