Mini Boat Madness

Mini Boat Madness Goes Simple!

Welcome to the new Mini Boat Madness forum. We've completed the conversion and migration to our new forum platform, Simple Machines Forum. Our primary goal was to increase site speed and member accessibility. The original software just wasn't living up to our needs, so we switched. Early testing has shown a dramatic increase in site speed and we hope it stays that way.

MBM is a work in progress and will always be a living, evolving forum. As you check out the new format, please don't hesitate to let us know about any problems you might find. The database conversion was not without issue, so let us know about any bugs!

All currently registered members will be receiving an email containing a new password. Unfortunately, password migration was not possible and new ones are the solution. Hopefully, you won't find this too much of an inconvenience.

Signatures may also need to be updated. It appears that the formatting from the old forum is not compatible with SMF.

Thanks to our growing membership for the continued support. We hope this new software will allow us to continue growing for years to come.

Bolting aluminum
Last Poster: Steve S in Trailers & Tow Rigs on September 01, 2014, 01:46:51 PM
Working on some steps for the Ocean Express trailer . It has steps in front and back of each fender that have carpet covered wood . I am replacing the wood with diamond plated aluminum . I am now to the point of bolting the diamond plates to the trailer . I'm trying to remember which metal not to use with aluminum . Was it not to use stainless steel bolts and aluminum ?

Do you have any way to weigh the hull ?


We do, but haven't gotten around to doing it just yet.

After searching the web , I found several methods to try and one that actually worked .
"Rem" oil (w/ teflon), similar to WD-40 but made for fire arms .
Spray the residual adhesive and let stand for a minute , wiping any run off .
Then use a plastic card of your choice to scrape the gum off , wipe the card clean after each pass .
Push or pull in one direction on
