Bolt on is also greatly facilitates replacement when they get dinged up.

I have seen thru-bolts that (IMHO) would serve better in a shear direction of force more so than an internal threaded connection. However, that's just my $0.02. If you see that a threaded connection works, all the better for me. I have a picture somewhere of what I am describing.

Corey, could you post a doodle if the idea? I'm intruiged. My prop guard is off right now so a guy does BG a restoration can fab a factory designed one for his. I figure I'll clean it up and do something roller wise while it's off.

If I get time I'll draw a model up at work tomorrow. I don't know what the angle needs to be but I'm thinking very similar to the photos posted on this thread but just a solid block of aluminum with helicoiled threads set up for a standard J&L of MSC caster wheel. Then I could just make the blocks and a drilling template for us and you could order your own wheels. My boat is at my Dad's right now so I can't get good measurements. Like I said, if I get a chance I'll model a rough idea of it tomorrow on Mastercam or Solidworks.

Been searching on and off for days, found it.
This is what I'm thinking of, though it would be very specific to the trailer generation. I know MikeG would have different dimensions than mine.

Just something basic like this but I think it would look pretty good. Being aluminum you could paint to match or polish it up.
