Drag wheels

I just put my new drag wheels on my trailer. It went up the driveway so easy and quite. No screaching from those steel rollers.

It is a 35th Anniversary 197. Has the stainless underwater gear.

Your wheels look good. So much better than the stock things.

As the owner of steel rollers, I know how happy the poly rollers (or whatever) are making you. I went for low profile steel and it has left some pretty ugly marks on my driveway. Fortunately, the lift kit has solved this problem. It takes a hefty angle, but I don't touch at all any more. This picture is right after they were installed (forgive the primer on the trailer). I'll have to upload a post-lift picture soon, too.

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.

Lighting problems

Doug and others,
I have noticed your prop guards setup for awhile now and wondered if it was legal. When the prop guard is added it becomes the rearmost portion of the trailer. There are specific requirements for trailers over 80" to have center identification lights as oulined in the following link.

Lighting requirements

I would think that the clearance lights need to be moved to the prop gaurd to be perfectly legal, Does anyone else have some input or experience on this ?

I didn't actually add this prop guard. I already had a prop guard. But it was so banged up from driveway dragging, that I replaced it.

From a quick read of section 547 of the Texas Transportation Code (specifically sec. 547.352), it doesn't look as if I need one of those light bars on the trailer at all, but I could have missed something.

The trailers come from MC with the light bar on the inner cross member, not the prop guard.
