I'm fairly certain the transom is fine. Their is no flex that I can see, but will have somebody down to help test it more later on.

Glad I wasn't doing highway speeds, could have been much worse.

Boat is fully insured, so either way it'll be fine. Bearings looks pretty easy to do as well, and sure I'll change out the other side while I'm at it.

Damn Dude. That's a nasty lesson to have to learn. I've been though a few of those myself lately.
Luckily it looks like you've managed to avoid truly serious damage.

Man that sucks. Hope it's not too expensive of a fix.

Thanks for the reminder though. I know what I will be doing tonight before driving to Boyd tomorrow. lol

Wow--As bad as that is, yes, you're fortunate to not have been carrying the mail down the highway.

I don't see buddys. Worth their weight in gold IMO. Been trailering for 30= years, never had a single problem.

One easy way to check, jack the trailer up so the wheels are just off the ground and spin each wheel. You shouldn't hear any noise, if you do you have bearing wear and need to replace.
