Im Not The Best Welder Inthe World....as A Matter Of Fact, This Was My First Time Doing It. But I Fixed My Trailer. I Went To Sabel Steel And Bought Some Solid Rod Pipe And Then Some Pipe Just Big Enough To Go Around That Solid Piece. Greased Them And Slid Them Together And Made Me Some Rollers To Go Under The Prop. Also Welded The Whole Prop Guard Together On The Bottom. No More Bolt Heads To Get Scraped Off And The Guard Hanging And Dragging As Im Headed To The Lake.

Im Finishing Up Now And Will Get Pics. Im Going To Practice My Welding. Thats A Good Thing To Know How To Do. But Anyway, I Did It All By Myself And That Makes It All Better. It Makes You Appreciate Things Like What Shep Did Restoring His Boat. Lots Of Hard Work Goes Into Them
