Re: Trailer

EZ Loader trailer in Spokane builds a great woody boat trailer. I have one under my 1959 Capri. Really a class trailer.

Contact me if interested in Inland Empire ACBS. Great group.

Also, Andy Kerfoot at Wood Boat Endevor in Post Falls is a great woody boat restorer. National awards earned.
