    OFSC REPORT

    You think Ford is going to fund our sport, look at the slashing and hacking he has done already. I'm not happy with what he is doing but at least he has the kahunas to do what needs to be done. Many on here must remember Bob ray, he did the same thing.

    By them, who do you mean exactly? As for the current method of waiting for a crime to happen before an arrest is made? Do you suggest something else? Its crucial to grasp there is no them and us. Its only US. Thats it and thats all there ever will be. ALL of US have a right to a fair trial based on the presumption of innocence and the benefit of doubt. If you dont agree with that granting rights skirting powers to police to act as a judge/jury in a road side manner is NOT the way forward. Its backward. Absolute power, corrupts absolutely. We need to keep the checks and balances in play

    Looks very positive to me, hopefully the data can be put to good use to get some funding.

    My wife and daughter ride horses. I'm sure that the results in that sport would be flipped 180 * in gender respondents

    Looks like sledding has a long way to go for gender equality...

    Long read, but sledding sure brings a ton of money in on a yearly basis.

    We had stickers but no insurance on them. Td/ belair/caa would not insure them.

    I got a registration and yearly license for my kids 17 120. My own kid will ride it on the lakes I dont think I would take the liability of having someone else's kid on it.

    Just saw this online and thought I would share it with all of you. Very interesting reading. http://ofsc.on.ca/sites/default/files/Website%2019/OFSC%20Economic%20Impact%20Study-June%2012%20Optimized-compressed.pdf?fbclid=IwAR1cv9ufSxhEKK9dW8_k476EqgWxQYX_M3eHBI0dAQQw9jI7UASl7wUFwyk

    Technically your own property I'm pretty sure. But you see lots of them out on the lakes.
  17. Can you get insurance for these? Do they have license ownership registrations? Or do you just get a bill of sale when you buy them? Wondering how this works when they are kids sleds with unlicensed drivers using them. Can my kids legally ride these on the lake at our cottage? Or are we restricted to our own property?

    Good idea on saving the sides of your trailer. Just a thought.You could also use those pockets to hold extra bottles of oil, spare drive belt,spare skags,sliders or tie down straps..Just my 02 cents..

    Picked up a 2 year old 8x12’ Mission trailer at the end of the season. Towed well empty but much more wind drag than my old 8x10’ clam shell Triton. I like this modification the previous owner made to prevent the skis hitting the door frame.

    Enjoying this thread. Lots of good info on the trailers.Thanks Slomo for posting things that you did or did not like on your trailer and posting how you made little changes to make it your own.This info hopefully will help people make a better informed decision when purchasing a new trailer. And like BP said "do a good summer check over to avoid frustration when you are needing your trailer".Keep the good tips coming.

    Good explanation of that process and some applications here for those curious types: https://www.wileymetal.com/what-is-cold-metal-transfer-and-is-it-more-efficient-than-mig/ Out of curiousity, I am going to look at that area further to see if the structure could be improved by physical joint - an ounce of prevention etc. Be looking at my Triton more closely as well.

    The aluminum weld quality leaves a lot to be desired. Looks like it was made with a spool gun and not a Fronius CMT welding system. Maybe the weld will break before the channel corrodes through. One of the mounting brackets on my Toy Carrier axle (same axle as used on Triton) broke beside the weld at bracket to axle joint in the heat affected zone. This caused more sway than normal and if left unchecked, would result in an axle leaving the trailer. It was welded and got through the winter. Needs checking again. The moral of the story is to do a good summer check over to avoid the tears on the side of the road and ride home on a flat bed.

    Rather than provide an active presence on the roads as a deterrent, and to nab the impaired, or sociopathic, the current method seems to me to be to wait for them to kill someone, then show up.

    I have almost no opinion on how they enforce it, but this made me sick. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/christy-natsis-appeal-bryan-casey-impaired-driving-fatal-1.4642485 This waste of skin dragged this out for YEARS, because she could afford to. People who followed this will remember how, at the scene, she got on the phone with her lawyer, for an extended period of time, to use legal counsel as an excuse not to blow into the breathalyser. She made the news many times over the years, breaking her bail conditions, and generally being an a-ho. I'm furious about my tax dollars being used to convict, incarcerate, and supposedly "rehabilitate" this POS. The reactive, as opposed to pro-active method of policing drunks and other bad drivers on the road is just not working.

    Not too hard to do........I have the trailer resting on its frame while I use it as a work space for my new to me snowmobile....and passing on some observations. I have it on good authority that Triton was interested in how this trailer compared to their similar offering. I have to say, appreciated some of the comments in this thread that are based on fact or evidence - as opposed to those channeling their inner Craig Nicholson - particularly the dangers of aluminum and ferrous metal contact. Not sure how PLC's idea of a sacrificial anode would work as I think the anode has to be immersed in water to work, but good thinking nevertheless. Might help out someone like myself who does not go into debt for toys (unless 0% interest rate or similar) and wants to save 3 - 4 thousand dollars.

    As much as I am will to take her side in this, where is the other side to this story? What made the cops track her down at her sister's house for this breathalyzer? Did she run a red light? Was she seen weaving on the road? Did someone call in a complaint? (this I feel is most likely what happened. She likely left somewhere's else impaired and those people called the cops).

    Wow, Slomo you are one .....uh...... thorough dude. I've had an aluminum enclosed trailer for 10 years now and I don't think I've ever looked underneath it......lol I was thinking maybe I should change out the tires this fall since I've only ever changed one due to a blow out. That was 6-7 years ago.
