We did this because, scraping mussels and barnacles off the boat bottom needs to be done much more frequently that we have been doing in the past. Having the trailer on Hudson Island will make it much easier. Plus, the trailer doesn’t sit beside the road on Thetis Island anymore. A disadvantage. If we ever need to to take that boat to a mechanic again, it will be hard to get the trailer off the island, if the boat itself isn’t working.
