Oh the joys of boat ownership!! Don't feel to bad. I am waiting for the tide to come up a little more so Sea Tow can pull me off into deeper water. Was very busy this afternoon making a new channel North of CB Inlet on the ICW. Been a long time since I did something this stupid. Not having a very good day myself. :oops: :oops:

Dang - I don't feel so bad now.

My $900 redo job on brakes still has lingering issue, all brake fluid has drained out. Going to be fun finding the leak and all that follows.

Had them replace some trailer lights and half of them are not working. Nick in wires corroded the wires into.

So much fun!!! 8O

Trailer brakes on anything smaller than 30 feet is a waste of money.

I'll agree they are a money pit, no doubt.

I'd rather take a beating naked in public than be without my boat. But gripping about it doesn't hurt either.... wink

gaffer, you said you spent $900 on brake work on you trailer. they better have used gold on those brakes or SOME ONE SEEN YOU COMEING!!!!!! i have been a mach. for over 30 years and i can't think of any thing that would cost that much. what all did they do? let me know where you went so i don't go there. hack it depends on how much has to be done but i do brakes for $25 on up to maybe $45 or $50 per wheel plus parts and i don't mark up parts like some places do. like marking a set of $15 brake shoes up to $45 yes i do mark up a little from what it cost me but that just to cover my time searching and going to get them. i went to the john deere dealer to get some blades and seen the sign ( LABOR STARTING AT $65 PER HOUR ) hell for that i sould have gone to work for myself years ago. i have had some people tell me i didn't charge enough on labor on some jobs i hae done in the past.

Well it was a bit more than brakes - all new hubs (tandem), cylinders, pads, rewired trailer, LED lights, and a few other things. Seems the hubs were 1990 something (or older) on a 2008 trailer and no parts could be found. Road King Trailers are not my first choice for sure... Would have done myself, but working about 700 miles away from the coast right now, so I guess you would say that when I do get the back there, I value my time with the family and on the boat more than spending it working on it. Guess it comes down to what is important to you.

Thanks for all the kind words. Will look you up next time I need some work - on a brake job or lawn mower blades sharpened.

Tight lines...

gaffer, i didn't mean to sound like i was saying you got ripped off. after i posted i thought about it and figured there had to be a lot more than just brake work done. but in a way i was saying that a lot of places do charge more than they should for whats being done. i do remember when i worked at midas in the 80s we gave a guy a price of over $2,500 for a brake job on a corvette but he had to replace everything and at the price we gave him that was giveing the calibers at our cost of $230 per 1/2 and about $160 in labor for all the work. i had one lady come in with the brake light on and said the dealer wanted over $500 for the job and after i checked it out the only thing wrong was the float in the master was sticking. a little cleaning, add a little fluid and she was good to go and didn't even charge for it but did get some good mouth to mouth advertizement for our time. i guess what ia trying to say is that i try to treat others the way i want to be treated and not rip them off.

I ripped the brakes off my 20 ft Scout trailer. Just don't follow anyone too close.

Agree x2. There is no way I would even consider brakes for my 23'. I think they give more problems than lights.

Amen again....I need to get smart enough to figure out how to disconnect my drum brakes (with everything "appearing" to be in working order of course).
Drum brakes + salt water = headaches and black marks on pavement!
