Lucky guy.
Yup, loved parking by the ocean with the swells rolling in.

And better still, the barometer needle didn't fall off. Left it place the whole time. So Glenn either got a couple of duds or the tandem axle rides smoother than a single axle.

It's a nice addition and I'm glad to have it. Whoa, having the hygrometer showing humidity was a bit of a reminder to keep some vents cracked open.

I'm with Glenn... take the barometer out. On our travel to Calgary last week from Thunder Bay we chose the "Yellow Head" hwy and there were some rough spots. Barometer didn't hit 6 but came close to 5. So out it will come from now on... if I remember!

Must be that the single axle doesn't ride nearly as smooth as the tandem axle. The contents of my Scamp used to look like they'd gone through a spin cycle compared to the contents of the 19.

At any rate, in the circuit that I just did, there were a few areas where my teeth were clenched for a while. As I've said before, I've had them in boats for may years that suffered impacts at least jarring as any the trailer receives. And boats don't have suspensions. We'll see how it survives Baja, that'll be the ultimate test.

I expect the barometer in your boat cost more than $24.50 CAD.

Hi: gbaglo... I don't need a barometer. Usually check the look on my wife's face... indicates stormy weather. Temp is always hot water hot, and time stands still being retired. I do like the oak mounting though. Alf

O Kaaaay, after I finish waxing my trailer, making a part for a disabled person and cutting some fence posts, my time this morning is going to stand still? I wish.

Don't know why, there's no sun up in the sky
Stormy weather
And always beware if you get a call late in the night asking if the coast is clear?
It may not be the Coast Guard
