As a winter project, ( we are in the snow here in Quebec) i started a new trailer project in my basement. All aluminium trailer for my new TI which is in order at this time. I should get it in april 2013. I already got some matérial ready, and i started to build it, after drawing my plans. I will try to post some pictures if i can find how ;0). I will be using PVC pipes for supporting the TI instead of the Hobie cradles. I am also planning to make Hakas and also a beach cart. Should have enough of 4 months to do everything...well i hope.
The basic frame is made of 4 aluminium channels 2''X3'' 5/16 thick, cut at 45 degre angle on each end. It is bolted together with 6''x6'' 1/4 plate gussets on top and bottom. I used zinc grade 8 ( 5 was not available) hex bolt and nylock nuts. 6 bolts on each gusset.
Here is one gusset
Bolting for fit first angle with template gusset.
One corner fully bolted with first post bolted ( 3 bolts)
Some other pictures......
