Default So I Picked the boat up....

Last night went down to VA to pick the boat up after signing the papers.ME and Sloman (my brother) went down met the guy at Wawa gas station and gave the money and picked up the boat.Well let me just say the guy never trailered the boat more than half a mile round trip to his marina so the trailer doesn't have much use.So we get about half way home when the buddy bearing comes off,so we figure drive slow we'll be good,WRONG.We get a little ways up the road and smoke starts pouring out of the tire,so we pull in a gas station and take a look.It's a triple axle trailer just to let ya know,the front right tire hub broke when Sloman had to do a hard break.So we eventually got the tire off and strapped and tied the axle up to the frame so it wouldn't hang down.But we finally limped the boat home and got it parked. But i just want to give a big thanks to my bro Sloman cause without him i'd have been **** out of Luck cause i didn't know what to do so thanks Sean.Have pics up soon....I hope i can get it fixed by friday i really wanted to put the boat in this weekend for the first time.Wish me luck...
