But it is true that for every one trailer you find with fully working lights, I can point out nine that do not, anywhere and everywhere on the road, no matter how you spell your state or city.
I guess it was just more noticeable down there with so many boats going to and from all the various places, being there is water everywhere. Boy do I miss spending a nice weekend in the swamp. I did not mean to be insulting on that last reply, boat trailers especially a well used one tend to be especially hard to keep good wiring and grounds on, being they are getting drenched and dried so often.

I like the way you built your license plate holder; should be solid as a rock.
I have seen a few too many plates held on by two bolts through the top holes with the result that after enough vibrating and flexing, all that remains attached to the trailer is the top strip of plate and the two bolts .

Hey Cramd, I agree I seen so many tags that used a cheap bracket and it just falls off in time. My dad has always mounted his tags on a frame of some kind. One trailer he built the tag was low to the ground he made it out of 2" channel you could jack the trailer up by the tag bracket

I had a street bike that buzzed pretty good, it vibrated the license plate into 2 pieces on a long road trip. I remounted the plate upside down so I wouldn't get a ticket. ...got a ticket anyway, upside down plate.

Should have just duck tapped it to the back of your helmet.

If you are ashamed of your welds, grind them, otherwise, let them be.
