So I drove my truck over to the weight station by Napa on Dowling (there is one on the road to the west of Napa, it is one the right side of the road past the recycling area, you drive on and look across the road on the blue warehouse and the weight shows on a digital sign, how cool is that??)
The truck alone is 5620
Truck and boat is 10600
truck with the trailer attached but the trailer tires not on the scale was 6200
Trailer is 950
Boat weights 4030 or so.
6200 - 5620= 580 tongue weight
A little heavier than I like.
So I go to move the axle forward a bit, Well... first of all Trailercraft doesn't have the proper size ubolt, 6 robbers is closed and I notice that there is a broken spring hanger u bolt on EACH side of the axle
Another point. grade 5 bolts break easy. So I am going to have to either check 6 robbers monday or order them online before I can go play.
I could have Alaska spring or Youngs gears make them, but I don't know if the bank will loan me that much......
I did make temp ones using 1/4 x 2 inch strap and 1/2 bolts, but it isn't anything I would want to drag to Seward or Whittier
Oh and tongue weight...... right at 300 pounds which is what most recommend
