Boat and trailer tampering
« on: September 10, 2018, 08:54:07 pm »
Gíday guys
just saw a post on facebook about another boat trailer having itís wheel nuts loosened. What can we do about this? Itís getting a bit scary imagine if the wheel came off while you are at speed on the highway. Iíve had a wheel come off a couple of years ago ( dodgy bearings) fortunately it was on a very slow corner near lake plimsole. Iíve had nightmares since when I think about how I was doing the speed limit only minutes before and it could have come off and killed me or some other poor sod driving on the highway. To think of the carnage that could be caused by this intentional criminal behaviour is terrifying.
Please check and recheck your trailer and couplings before heading home.
Cheers chris

We were out yesterday and today and checked the trailer before retrieving the boat. No issues at the Orford River but suppose it only takes one dickhead furious1
