I'm not very familiar with these boats and trailers, but doesn't it look like the bunks extend way far aft of the wheel wells? Is that normal or a result of the crash?

Design flaw
Been there with my trailer, not while traveling down the highway, but running up on the trailer and failed at the same location
Mastercraft prefers to remove a 3x3 inch area on each side on a 3x4 box metal frame only to pass the brake line and a couple of wires

My wife's first boat she could ski behind was a Dixie outboard, they were made in Newton - or Hickory, NC.
I looked at that boat a few months ago. Skied behind one a couple times. Wasn't too bad as I remember.

I see what the result was but what happened to cause this it looks like there is a vehicle in front as well along with the skidmarks.

A couple photos of my older brother who passed away last week at the young age of 58.

No retreat, baby, no surrender

Sorry for you loss, LeRue. You'll see him on the high ground.

Same here LaRue.....lost my older brother too. He was my ski buddy, hence my screen name is directly tied to him "ski-me".

Prayers for you and your family. You will see him again.

I lost my brother at 49 a few years ago, it was the toughest thing I ever went through.

Remember the good times, forget the rocky ones and talk to friends and family, it helps.

My God be with you.
