Out of state trailer that's never been licensed before?
If so...does the previous owner have any documentation( I.E. bill of sale) directly from the trailer manufacturer when trailer was new with trailer serial number and weight on it?
Ya, FW, i bought the boat in Ohio, but it has W.V. plates.
The seller had the title, but no previous registration. I don't believe that Ohio will take any weight documentation but a weigh slip?

Now I'm confused...but that's nothing unusual...
...Took this straight from Ohio BMV site in section about registering non commercial trailer:

I bought my boat from Indiana up around Chicago. Indiana boat dealer issued me a temporary tag for trailer to drive back to Ohio. Included in my trailer paperwork was the above mentioned 'Manufacture of Origin (MSO) ' document that is straight from the trailer manufacture and the document included all vital info including trailer ser. # and weight.
That's all I had to have to get trailer registration here in Ohio.
I did not have to remove boat and have trailer weighed.

Mornin fellars...
I sure hope that's right, FW. Ya think i can find weight info for a 2000 Shorlander?

Good morning guys. We cut some cedar posts last night for the porch. How do you think they’ll look compared to ash. Try and frame the porch in next. Gonna be another nice day. Enjoy it View attachment 466074

Those cedar posts are gorgeous, Magic. Do you sell any of that? If so i'd be interested.

In my neck o the woods, it was Coney Island in New Castle, Pa. They still make the best sauce in the world for a hotter sauce.
Don't get me wrong, i like da sweeter Jib Jab type as well, but ya ain't lived til ya had some dogs wit Coney Island sauce.🤙

This is interesting.
It's freak'n awesome to see those great birds have made such a terrific recovery.
I think i told you guys about the one that flew 15' over my head last year.
I believe he was eyeballing all the doves around my bird feeder.
I had never seen one so "up close" and brobably never will again.
Good article, my friend. 🤙

That's a good trick with a hair dryer. I use one to heat the leather and green chromium oxide when I charge a strop. The oxide flows much better and I get great coverage.
I've got some kydex materials to make knife sheaths with. I'll tackle that after I retire.
Lazy, my brother, always put 2-3 layers of masking tape over the blade and trim it with an exacto type tool before you go into your kydex press. This gives it just enough clearance to "not scrape" the knife as you go in and out with it. After you decide where your grip point is going to be, run the tape just short of that point. 🤙

Have thought about maybe getting into the kydex holsters/sheaths as well.
Having carried a pistol in a kydex holster for several yrs., I found kydex holsters will put more wear marks on a pistol versus a leather/nylon holster.
Do you think the kydex sheath dulls knife blades any over time?
FW, i don't know about the holsters, but i've been doing the sheathes for a while now. One should make their sheath with an extra 1/2" ( or more) on either side of the blade. This will give the clearance to not scrape your cutting edge. Also, once you've done your press, back off of the cutting edge a little with your rivets. If you think your still rubbing, you can line the inside with a very thin leather, but you'll have to do that prior to riveting. Hope this helps, my friend. 🤙

Put it this way, FW, i clean the handle epoxy off of my blades with a brass scraper.
If your blade is heat treated properly, the kydex and even the rivets, will not hurt your blade. :)
