    Believe It or Not...

    If the lower end won’t drop after bolts are removed don’t just start chiseling away. Take your time and use a combo of heat and penetrating oil at the sticking points (alignment pins) etc. Walk away from it frequently and let the oil do its job. The best penetrating concoction believe it it or...

    Believe It or Not...

    At least loosen the bolts and drop the lower end a few inches. There can be a corrosion issue between the aluminum and stainless bolts. Possibly play hell to drop it when you want to. Don't ask how I know. Not to mention regressing the shaft spline.

    Boat overhang on trailer

    What I have been told is you want a 60/40 split of weight front to back on tandem axles. The little extra weight forward helps the trailer run straight. Whats the total weight of boat/trailer when connected to tow rig. Like The Peddler said, you really need accurate weights of each axle.

When a mono hull crests the top of a swell at plane the shape of the hull displaces the water as it re enters (with a hard thump)...
