Love these projects!...just like growing up when kids did stuff on boats and cars without adult supervision or a class. Just learning and creating as you go....

In a tip of the hat to my metal shop teacher / mentor, everything that got welded was painted Rustoleum fish oil primer red. Yes, I built the boat trailer. "No kill, like overkill."

The local surf fishermen of Hatteras wanted to know if I took it on the beach.

So yes, we could get locked in if someone wanted to do that. But the windows I put in are large RV “escape” windows that swing open from the bottom so one could fairly easily get out.



Just lock the hasp closed with a padlock, then they cannot lock you in. Or add a second hasp and lock the bar in the open position.


Get these style locks.. harder for the tweakers to cut their way into the trailer when parked.. one of ours just got broken into last week.. lost another $ 4K of tools (again)
Cool project!

For hotels, wedding receptions, restaurants etc, we have a "you must be seated" rule. So no table hopping, leaning on the bar, etc. If it works to some extent it`s worthwhile. We just added, to the existing requirement that bars and restaurants record names and phone numbers, that they have a dedicated distancing/behavior marshall on duty. Checks are being done by Police for a range of non compliance,this included. We have strong licensing laws and some places have been fined and closed for a period because of breaches. They hate getting shut down.

While I don't disagree with the concept of contact tracing, and think the measure is prudent, that's the point where I stopped going to bars and restaurants. Just what I need, another business selling my phone number to telemarketers and scam artists.

Bored Covid project

Got the shower curtain ring installed. Itís an old wine barrel hoop I found. Need to position the curtain a little better. It might be too small. Also got the shower basin/portable beer and wine cooler in place.

Got the Natureís Head desiccating toilet installed and filled with coconut coir. If yíall donít know, I installed one of these in my boat and really like it. Simple, no oder problems. Works great for a couple, but not as great if you have a party boat as the urine container would fill up too fast. Itís perfect for this trailer, or for a cabin in the woods. It has a little computer fan that pulls a little bit of air across the coir and keeps it dry, and that vents out the floor.

This is the vent hose that connects to the little computer fan inside the square inlet on the toilet. It pulls very few amps.
