My ('59) 13'sport is presently in the boat works getting sanded, gelcoated and repainted (I just went and looked at it today and the bottom is done, they'll flip it over tomorrow and start on the top)and I need to find out the right placement of the bunkers and rollers. I don't want to ruin my new paint job. I've searched back 100 days in this topic and did't see what I need, I've also looked under trailering and didn't quite understand. If anybody could help with a diagram, I would appreciate it. I'm using a Shorelander trailer, don't know what year.
P.S. I would have never taken it in to be worked on if I hadn't stumbled onto this website a couple of weeks ago, I was so motivated that day that when I got home I stripped it down and called the boat works the next day. I'm so glad I did!

How is the Shorelander set up at present?

It's got 2 old black rollers up the middle, and I just last night pulled off the rollers on the back that look like they are supposed to wrap around the bottom and side of a boat.
I bought this trailer about 6 years ago, the boat never had a trailer, it always sat at my grandfathers cabin and they would just pick it up every spring and throw it in the water, every fall they would pick it up and throw it on shore and turn it over. When my dad took the boat, he bought some crummy old trailer to transport it, he lived on a lake and only had to go two blocks to the landing.

I am curious about how much $ it cost for the paint job one the 13 and what kind of paint they will use (Imron? Awlgrip?) Thanks,

It's going to cost about $2000, they sanded down the bottom, (my dad had painted it about 7 years ago with a brush) fixed a couple of big gouges in the hull (no water in there), gelcoated some areas and painted it. They're going to patch some holes on the top side that my dad put in it when he installed a deck.
They use a flexgrip paint, I asked about emron (imron?) paint and he said the flexgrip is just as good as emron, and he did'nt want to subject his guys to the emron as its pretty toxic stuff. This is a boatworks and they actually fabricate fiberglass sailboats and have been around for about 50 to 60 years if not longer.

I was wrong when I said it was a shorelander, it's not, it's Sport by Spartan.
