Many axles are strapped to frame by U-Bolts, they are not very expensive to buy.

I did the same thing a few years ago, the U bolt wasn't tight enough and one wheel hooked the apron as I was coming out of the landing. It sheared of the centering pin and slid that side back about three inches. Easy fix, but put some serious wear on the tires.

I know how ya feel brother. Last weekend I replaced my dead outboard. Two nights before I picked up the motor my trolling motor died, the day before that the pin that holds the trolling motor down busted loose so I had to use some creative engineering to keep it down. Now last night, the first time taking it out with the new motor, my depth finder started blanking out on me. One more thing goes wrong I am going to have a boat burning party and you can come.

Thanks for the info i will consider your invitation. I finally figured it out though. The main screws that hold the hwole left tire/fender assembly came loose and the hole thing shifted on me. Fixed it today in the rain cause tourney is tommorow. replaced the board that the outborad mounts onto on the back of the transom too. A little happier, but i guess u can say im waiting for the next thing to go wrong......... crazy.gif

Oh, one more thing - I backed the boat in last night and in all the excitement of having a running motor I didn't see the importance of putting the plug in the boat. I started pulling the trailer out when I realized what I did so I ran back to the boat and dove in from the dock. I then proceeded to bust the back seat completely off with all 250 pounds of my fat butt diving for the plug.

OMG!!!!!!!!! talk about stuff going wrong i feel sorry for u!!!!!!! the thing with my stuff is that its all old so naturally it breaks on me, but for the most part its quality stuff so after i get it fixed it usually lasts unless i get a stroke of bad luck though!!!!!!!! still having that boat burn? LOL...........

      First open water fishing this morning. Planed to go to Clearwater but water was 6 inches over docks. Drove over to Sylvia/Twin and access was great. Water very clear, could see bottom in more than 12 ft.  Caught several sunfish and bass. 2 northerns and a crappie. Most went back including a 9.5 in male sunny. Beautiful fish. Most caught in less than 3 ft water.  Temp was 61.

      We are high up on the hill so no worry of water damage, but our electrical box wasn't too far from the rising lake water. I hope that issue doesn't start hitting others as well!

      I was up for opening weekend, but only fished Saturday morning. I had a limit by 6:30 so headed back to the cabin to get work done. In about an hour I lost 2 on the way to the boat, boated a 13" that I threw back, and kept a 14, 15, 16, 17. Nice size eaters. Jig and minnow in 15-20 FOW.  Water temps where I was fishing was 41.    I have damage to 2 docks and several trees down. I hope this water level goes down soon! Good luck everyone.

      I'm willing to buy this white shirt. It will look awesome with the juicewrld pants.

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception
