ID:	42789 How not to dunk painted mild steel even one time in saltwater, no matter your cleaning intentions!
    My son bought this $300.00 trailer for $180.00,
    Then realized, hey, It's eat up with corrosion-DUH!
    We unbolted crewmembers from galvanized tandem frame so, we have a good start for the next stage.

      Trailer? That first picture looks like a pile of scrap metal.

        Exactly, at 21, you still know it all, at least he's salvaging the axles and galvanized angle to build the new frame rails off of.

              my steel trailer on my bass boat literally disintegrated in my yard after using it in salt water. Tried all kinds of fancy epoxy glass impregnated paint, which just created a tube to hold the rust together.

                I think it may have been the grass the trailer was parked over..

                    No! My son is, you can all ways tell him, but not much!
                    At least he is able to salvage the the axles along with everything required to keep as a tandem. Click image for larger version

                        I believe there was someone over at TOS building a stainless trailer.

                            Wait until they discover stress cracking/corrosion. Then that thread will get really fun.
