Re: Galilee 15
I have a Galilee 15 that I bought in less than prime condition on Dregs list a couple of years ago. Just before I started having health problems following an automobile accident.
I am pretty much over the problem I was having and have the minor dock rash on the bow patched up, leaves, scum, varnish, rigging and now the trailer problems mostly cleaned up. I was going to go plunk it in the water last Saturday and see if it floats but the trailer developed a hot wheel bearing which has lead me to have to replace both hubs, bearings and spindles on the wimpy little axle the tiny wheels turn on.
I'll splash her shortly after the wheels on the trailer are turning again. There will be a little welding job there to replace both spindles, springs and fix bunk brackets. If after that, I think it is worth it, I will make new splash boards as the old ones are split and down right scaly looking.
Wish me luck!
