And here is the list of projects I’ve come up with. Many are not mission critical to get in the water, but some are. Luckily I have about a month before the lake melts off so I have many evenings and weekends to get work done

Next project, was the brake controller and wiring refit. The trailer had a 6 pin and some shitty wires just pinned to the side of the frame, as well as brakes that didn’t really work. Not a huge deal when it’s being towed behind a full size Ram 2500 truck, but behind my Tacoma that 3500 lbs of boat pushes it around. So I pulled off all the trailer wiring, taped any cracked spots, and ran it all down one side of the trailer. I also cleaned up the janky twisted together trailer wiring. Everything now has proper crimp connectors. I ran it all forward into a new 7 blade connector. Man was the wiring all screwed up. The trailer brake wire was attached at the ground pin on the harness, there wasn’t even a ground wire going through to the vehicle, only a ground point on the trailer, which was spliced into the trailer brake wire, and the ground for the trailer brakes was going to the black 12v accessory pin. After testing and figuring out where it all should be going to work I taped it all up, ran a reverse light wire to the rear of the trailer for future use, and covered it in some plastic wire covering.

On the truck side, I installed a basic time delay brake controller. Easy enough, tapped into the brake wire off the pedal, got power from my engine bay fuse block, ground the brake controller to a unused thread in the cab, and ran the brake controller output back along the rest of my wiring harnesses. I cut off a bunch of crap wiring and old tape to get to this odd little flat 4 box, which worked fine so I ran the flat 4 wires to the 7 pin, and added my brake controller output, and a wire tap from the reverse lights. I didn’t have enough time to mount it before leaving for a wedding so I’ll finish the mount in a few days

Good for him! It’s a beautiful place indeed. Just a short sailing season, especially in a wet boat like a catamaran. When it’s cold here I can go sailing for a whole day and not get wet once, not an easy feat in a cat.

Our friends should be picking up a hobie 16 soon as well. So we will be out with a sailboat floatila

Alrighty. Got my trailer wiring all wrapped up and the 7 pin mounted to the truck. Simple 6mm nuts bolting the harness into a tab underneath the bed. Also is the brake controller location in the cab

I pulled the tarp off to start looking at the repair work inside..when I got some even worse new than I initially thought. The top of the bulkhead is affected almost all the way through the sheets. The port side has a small bit of staining but is in ok condition and does now warrant replacing like the starboard one does. I started tearing things off and pulled out the table. Also inspected the bilge to get ready to drop and Re bed the swing keel bolts. Sponged our a small bucket of water I didn’t even know was there that had been hanging out all winter 😕
So much to do
