Less terror: The shantyboat is fitted for a new winch post [VIDEO]

The Shantyboat takes a field trip down to Watsonville to be fitted for a new winch post. In the meantime the old one is cut off, and the shantyboat is secured by a janky system of ratchet straps. #boatrepair #ItHelpsToKnowTheGuy #sparks

Roy Large of Large’s Fabrication made us a new winch post for the trailer and fixed the step on the truck. So fun to hang out with a skilled craftsman. #fabrication #welding #heavymetal

New burly winch post nearly installed
Installed, painted, ready to go.

Now perhaps while we are towing the 7000lb boat down the road, we will be able to do with slightly more confidence.
