Default Myco Trailers

I wanted to take the time to say THANKS..I had a few items on my trailer that I had some concerns on. I called Bill Tweedie from Myco, explained my situation, and his reply was... Refreshing...especially with all the negativity that has been going on in the offshore world. Bill said he would take care of my concerns, check the trailer out completely and make any and all adjustments as well as return the trailer to my house since he was coming in this direction. What more could I ask for. I did received the trailer yesterday, and Bill is definitely a man of his word. Everything, as well as 1 more item the Myco team found was fixed, and all this to my satisfaction. This was my 3rd Myco trailer as well as I have a cradle for my 43 Nor-Tech on my lift. I am completely satisfied as well as furthered my decision on which trailer co. is by far the best. No questions asked on which trailer will be on my next boat. The other thing that needs mentioning, was the guys that dropped off the trailer..Bob and Chris from Florida Marine transport were the most gracious gentlemen that I have met for being a transport co. They even called to make sure I was completely satisfied on all aspects cause I was not here when they dropped it off. Thank You Bill, as well as the Myco team I appreciate everything.

Happy Boating

Jeff Jassby

I have towed many different trailers around this courntry. When I pull up to a boat and it is sitting on a myco I can feel more assured that I will not have a bearing or tire failure. Granted they are not perfect and I have had failures with them also but that is when the trailer is never serviced and left outside in the florida sun. When ever I do have a bearing problem I know that I can call myco with the model number and they will give me part numbers or cross reference the number so that I can get the new parts asap. Congrats to Bill Tweedie for not only running a great business but also for having bought the company within the last year from the original owner,

I spent some time with Bill at the Louisville boat show while he was working the Outerlimits display. What a great guy. Was very entertaining listening to stories of the good old days in offshore racing and the Thunderboat Row stories. I looked closely at Mentalpause's Myco for his F-4 and I was very impressed with the beefieness and build quality. Great guy, great company, great product.

Jeff, do you have a running count of how many bearings you have rebuilt, and how many tires you have changed?

not as many as you may assume. but I had one myco that left california to the east coast and I dropped the first bearing in arizona, fixed it and in Indy dropped the next one on the same side. I chained up that axel and kept going since it was late at night. in ohio the next one dropped on the same side so with two out I gave up. so in one trip I lost all three on one side. I finallly loaded the boat and trailer on a landoll and went the rest of the way. But I will say that the trailer was always in salt water and never washed or taken care of. Now coming out of key west this last year I was towing the 50 nortech canada thrust boat and i went via the card sound road due to the constuction and 2 miles from homestead the right front bearing of a new trailer caught on fire. I was looking out the right side mirrow and saw flames. As you know that road is narrow. I stopped and used gatorade to put it out. I made a phone call from there to a fellow OSO member (Buzzilia) and he directed me to a great shop in homestead where a marine shop fixed it up and headed to fastboats. got as far as 826 and tamiami trail and another bearing went. I pulled the wheel and whent to Randy's with 5 wheels turning. I must say though that I am pretty lucky with trailer failures concidering all of the traveling that i due
