After only a few setbacks I managed with much help and kindness from others to get a trailer purchased, repaired, hooked to a uhaul, loaded with a boat and driven several hours to Pensacola.  

 I know what you’re going to say already but it was the only truck they had and I will modify the trailer before the next trip to make it fit right. At least the balance was right. 

Pat picked out a real nice spot to store it and I spent some time with a vacuum sucking up sand, dead bugs, cookie crumbs and all the other things that settle in the floorboards. A few more chores and it will be ready for it’s long nap.
