Hey everyone from Bothell WA. Just bought a 2011 Triumph 17CC with original 70HP Yamaha for inshore fly fishing around Puget Sound and local lakes. My new girl needs a little TLC, but I intend to bring it back to mint condition. Looking forward to picking some brains on the forum. First thing is a new aluminum trailer. Original and second owners used the original steel trailer in the salt and it is trashed. Any trailer input is appreciated. I will use the search function for sure.
Thank you for the add!

Being galvanized it probably not trash! Just needs to be cleaned up. I use mine in salt but wash it off every time. Your motor looks really new! What years is your both and motor? Triumphs need proper trailer bunk supports to avoid hull damage or warping...

Hi SoCal170DC,

Both the boat and motor are 2011. I am the third owner and the first used it to guide out of so the motor has over 2000 hours, but has been partially rebuilt and runs like a top and looks like new, as does the boat. The trailer was definetly not taken well care of historically. The second owner had brushed all the rust off the rails and painted it, but the real issue is the running gear is very bad. I could have replaced nearly every component, but I just bought a brand new one since I plan to have it for a very long time. I ordered a 4 bunk galvanized to match the original bunk configuration as specified by Triumph. You can bet that I will take very good care of the new trailer. Also just picked up a couple gallons of Salt Off! Now for a new trolling motor.
Thanks for your input. Love the site and resources to be had.
