Hub Fell Off!

Thought you guys would like this one. Sunday we are coming back from Ocala, no big deal, tire blows. We change it, but can only get 2 lug nuts back on because the threads are so gulled up from rust. I limp home and all is well. Leave the boat in the driveway overnight, going to take it to a friends shop and repack the bearings, and put new studs on the one wheel.

Well, I hook back up last night, pull out of the driveway and look back. This is what I find.

This trailer is only 4 years old, and is washed down every trip.

How that ever made it from Ocala to Vero, I will never know. The past 3 weeks that boat made the trip 4 times. (180 miles one way)

Time to practice more of that TIG welding, Wayne.

Make you a stainless steel boat trailer

Glad it didn't cause any worse problems. Finding that while you're sitting still makes you think about how much worse it could've been going down the road.
