I have a '92 PS 205, and I was concerned about low voltage readings. I was told to never trust the gauge on the dash. You should get 14V at the alternator and battery when the engine is running. ...

planing boats get the best mileage once on plane, or about 25 mph. If you go slower the hull is pushing too much water around, if you go faster then increased drag increases fuel consumption

The equalizer is probably correct. The springs are clearly too long, the shackles between the equalizer and springs should be vertical with a load on the trailer when at rest.

Slightly tangential thoughts: Don’t even think about drum brakes, they’re a PITA. Get disks. IMO brakes on one axle are adequate, unless you’re hauling 5000+ lbs. If your trailer has leaf springs...

Your trailer doesn't seem to be right for the boat. It sure looks like a MC trailer, but not the right one. Even a traditional bow roller wouldn't touch the hull, the winch post is too low.

You don't need code numbers. If you have the fenders professionally painted the body shop can find the right shade for you. Or, if you plant to paint it yourself, your paint store can match it.

wheel rust removal

My trailer has steel chrome-plated wheels. Unfortunately, some surface rust has formed; they are structurally sound. Is there a simple way to remove the rust? Would CLR be a good choice?
