Paradise pockets...

Paradise pockets...  All the trailer pockets are now installed: 72 holes measured and drilled, 72 carriage bolts seated with a mallet, 18 pockets installed onto the bolts, 72 washers and nuts threaded on and tightened, and 72 bolts cut off.  It was actually a bit more work than I just listed, as after I installed the 14th pocket I discovered that it matters what direction they're installed – there's a top and bottom to the things.  Who knew?  Well, I had a 50/50 chance of getting each one installed correctly, and in fact I had installed 7 of 14 the right side up.  The other 7, though, I had to uninstall, turn over, and re-install.

But it's done now :)

Tomorrow I shall start on the stake sides.  Woo hoo!
