My neighbor is lazy so I gave up on him doing my metal work. The fab shop wanted $120 for a 15 minute job. SO I said F' em all. I bought a $14.99 grinder and some cut of wheels and sanding wheels at Harbor freight. Did it my self took about 3 hrs but that is because I had to let the cheapo grinder cool down alot. Got the boat guides (see above pics) cut off sanded down primed and the new hitch on.
All I need now is to bolt on the uni strut and the PVC bunks.. This is where I am running into trouble the trailer frame is made out of 3.5 in steel. They only make sq u bolts in widths 2', 2.5",3", and 4", Every damn size except for what I need. any suggestions on where to get 3.5in width u bolts? I have already tried every hardware store, lowes, home depot, fasten all, and the fab shop with no luck.
Ill post more pics once I get the uni strut on.

I finally found a metal dealer that does but I don't know what gauge or thickness I need to buy. Additionally I'm trying to figure out how long to buy it. I'm guessing that a min of 2' and maybe as much as 4' will be under the trailer. I'd like to minimize the back end hang off of the bigger boat (3'-4 maybe?) and I'm thinking of putting a support off of the tongue between the trailer and the truck. So... 10'? 12'?
Kayak is SPF. Thanks!
