Dang straight !!!!
I'm going calling in the morning.
A guy and his boy backed out but I'm still committed to going.
I busted butt to get the shade cloth top on the new pergola.
I mowed, trimmed,  weeded, and did a boat project .  
To free up the day, the daughter is picking up little GD at school .
Dinner will be crock pot stew,
 Free and clear.
Now if the dogs will come out and play It'll be a fine day.
  
     On a side note, I got some fuel line tubing, tubing bender set, some 1/2 Aluminum  rivets, and fuel line clamps in the mail.
Stopped my the steel provider and checked on some tubing for my tongue project on  the bug trailer.
WOW is that stuff pricey.  $335 for a 20 foot  2/1/2 X 2 1/2 thick wall and a 20 foot 3X3 thin wall,
dang.
I have a plan in my mind on how to turn the rudders , should not be to complicated.
 
IF by chance a coyote blindly come with in 6mm range I'll have some pictures.
   PS last half of May and first part of June, is a tough time to call, mom is in the den with the pups.

I would think you would only need, ten foot of the 2 1/2" X 2 1/2" and six to eight foot of the 3" X 3". You don't need to run full length of trailer, it would make strong backbone, of trailer by going 3 X 3, full length of trailer, but would be overkill, unless you wanted too.


I would use 3 X 3 from first cross member to end of hitch's A-frame, two foot to crossmember and another two foot to front of A-frame. I would then slide ten foot 2 1/2 X 2 1/2 into desired "road" position and put short piece of 3 X 3 to receive the end under trailer @ crossmember ( this would provide lateral support, for end of hitch tube, while stowed in road position ). I would then run 3 X 3 from end of trailer to first crossmember, this would be receiver for "launch" position, of hitch.


For your 2 1/2" X 2 1/2" tongue, I would drill one pin hole, that lined up with center 3 X 3 support, in road position ( aprox 6" from end) I would then drill hole in back 3 X 3 receiver tube, lined up ( aprox 6" from end of front end of tube) with the single hole in tongue tube. This would be launch position, leaving from 18" to 30" ( depending on crossmember spacing) of tongue tube, inside back receiver and 7 1/2' to 8 1/2' sticking out. On front 3 X 3 receiver tube, I would drill hole for pin, 18" of so back from front of A-frame, for tongue tube, this would leave couple feet of tongue tube, inside front receiver tube for "retrieving/loading" position and 8' extended, for longer reach. After pulling boat out, slide tongue back in to road position, replace pin and hook up lights and safety chains.

I would avoid putting second hole, in tongue tube, to line up with front receiver, in road position, this would severely weaken tongue tube, in extended launch and load positions and would cause failure point. I point this out, because, at the time of fabrication, it seems like good idea.

By the way enjoy the nice day, some thunder boomers and downpours heading your way, started here yesterday afternoon and are expected through weekend. You don't have to watch weather, just look at calendar here.

I need TWO tongues one in front and one in back.
 20 feet is probably over kill  but it's cheaper to buy a full "Stick" then to have them cut it.

I hope I can show off several dead coyotes.

I thought you were just moving one tongue (tube) from front to back, with receiver, for it, on each end?


I visualized, one on front, being up close for towing, down road. You would then support front with jack on A-frame, pull pin, slide out tube, and insert it in back receiver, leaving it sticking out 8'. You would then back boat in water, using hitch tube, in back, drive boat off trailer, and pull back to parking area. You would then switch hitch tube, back to front receiver, leaving it stick out 8', ready to load boat, which you drive on trailer, pull to parking area, put jack down, pull pin and slide hitch tube, back in close, for towing down road.


I would want trailer tongue up close, when driving down road and not have second, hitch hanging out back, to drag, as you went through every dip, on road.

Hopefully you can see, what I'm talking about. If you're not going to move hitch tube from one end to other, nor have it extendable, you only need the one tube, not receiver tube.


Local steel guy, sells steel by the pound and charges $5, for each cut. You pay about 10% extra per pound, for less than full length. They get most of steel in 40'+ lengths, so you're never really buying full "stick".

So is "dire wolf" under the same tag?

https://www.yahoo.com/news/mystery-wolf-creature-shot-killed-111901069.html

Kinda curious if maybe it was a werewolf that didn't change back. A lot of folks these days have been saying there is something in the water out your way so I'm packing my own from home next time I visit.

DNA test will probaably show it to be a dog or a wolf cross dog.  So many people think owning a half wolf is cool?

I sure wish I had a job where I could strive for a 50% accuracy rate.
The wind was way winder then forecasted. I had to shift my hunt 50 miles to the west to find callable wind. Other then using up an hour , not a huge thing.
made a lot of sets, had lookers on most of them. They where hanging up at 500 yards plus for what ever reason.
Two did stray in to range, one at 450 and one snuck up on me to about 150 guess which one.

D,

More 6mm ammo on the way from Missoula to GF.  If it didn't come today you should have it Tues. 
It looks like you might be needing it.
Trigger Control is knowing when not to pull it.

Glad to see you got the dogs to walk into your bullets again. Those things are hard to train to do that for sure.
