so I thought most of those sealers only took one coat - first coat seals the wood, anything else puddles up on top. Is it building up a finish? or/and is that why several days between coats?

Correct got to let it dry good to put another coat on my other boat trailer is mostly wood landscape timbers, a little bit of osb, and 2x6 planks. It's probably got 20 some coats of that stuff on. I haven't tried it yet but I'm thinking it might be bullet proof.

Nonsense, I have not yet begun to defile myself

The wood decks are getting a little weathered, but otherwise solid. Later in the spring, I'm going cut 4'x8' Vinyl Lattice into 2'x8' strips and countersink them I ontop of the wood deck under where the side tubes sit and slide.

Some of the local outfitters have Vinyl Lattice on their trailers and I've observed that their rafts slide off easier. I believe the plastic like lattice and 50% less surface contact of the grid-like material, equal 50% less contact friction.

It also seams like sand and dibris settles down between the square lattice holes and not rubbing on the material.

I'll update how well it worked after the season.

Yes it does. Its my 20' 14k lb car hauler with a drop in frame for the 18'er. Sucks to load though. Its tall and you need help. I can load it alone if I strip it down to just rubber. I'm going to mod my 16' hauler so I can winch it up loaded.

That's commonly refereed to as massive trailer OVERKILL, but hey - we do with what we have right!

oh and the brakes comment was really related to another trailer thread where we were debating the strengths and weaknesses of brakes on raft trailers. Excessively dry humor to myself I guess.
