Re: Converting swing board trailer to wing keel trailer?
Large steel plates are somewhat expensive. Have yet to explore too many options, this is what I have found. In order to get a 48" x 1/2" thick steel plate, I may have to get a 12" width (at least from the supplier that I studied):
Eight 12" x 1/2" x 48" A36 plates costs $950.
Weight: 654 pounds UPS shipping costs $603.
Since I am using eight plates, I see no need for 12" wide plates. We are not supporting a building.
