Clean mod! My prop guard looked much the same when I did mine a while back. Must be nice to have a machine shop at your disposal!!!

Change out the leaf springs and that will give you some additional lift - I was ready to get some rollers - was always scraping driveway in an out. New springs this year no more scraping and a bit more lift.

Owning a machine shop has it's advantages for sure. i replaced the springs last year and also added a 1" spacer to get the trailer up a bit from where it was before. when i did the springs i went with a lighter weight spring and it caused the trailer to sit lower than before but the spaicers fixed the problem. the lighter springs along with the new bushings that are brass lined and have greas fittings have made the ride incredibly smooth. the freeways arround here are designed to destroy evertything you own.

The pak wheels are nice, but they scored my driveway really badly. Hope you have better luck with them.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
