Boat story. Helped a friend go get a new boat. He’s something of a boat junkie, rolling from one right to the next one, selling the old one, etc.
So we take a pretty serious trailer to go pick up a new 30’ he had just purchased. The trailer had dual axles, necessary for that boat. BUT, the boat was heavier than he had thought. Two miles down the road after getting it, he blew a trailer tire. No problem. We remove it, go get a new one, come back. Twenty more miles down the road, about half way home, he blows TWO more tires. It becomes time to call in a favor, someone to bring him two more trailer rims/tires. So we wait on the side of the road. It was sweltering. And we wait, and we wait some more. Four hours we waited. FINALLY a buddy arrives with tires we get on the trailer. We finally take off. we get 1 mile from the destination, another tire blows. My buddy, the calmest person on earth, loses it. He goes on a twenty minute tantrum kicking the trailer and whatnot. Fortunately, he calms down and we go get that tire fixed and he gets it to a landing and into the water.
The moral of the story: NEVER undersize your boat trailer, and always expect trailer issues.
