Your certainly right ICEMAN but with everything thereís some that are gimmicks and some that are life savers, for example on the huntsman boats the back rest sqabs along the back of the boat are on hinges and the base of the seats are fish bins with removable seats, so I just put some separating hinges on the backrest part do I can remove them which means they donít get covered in fish etc
all day and more room for fish, such a simple fix but has made a huge difference

First thing I'd do with a Huntsman too. Add an electric anchor winch and washdown system be next if funds allow.
And a trailer washdown system next, the Hainess hunters and I think the Huntsman trailers have a piece down the middle that is prone to rust

I have seen a garden hose with 2 or 3 sprinklers hooked up in a line used  for washing underneath boat trailers.
