I was on Lee Road in Orlando today and I came up next to a guy pulling a knock off 12 - 14 foot Carolina skiff with a beautiful brand new looking new 4 stroke 25 HP Tohatsu. I heard bad things coming from the trailer's axle. It sounded like there may have been 1 or 2 bearings left and a whole lot of metal pieces floating around in there. Every time the tire went around it was a wack wack sound with some grinding mixed in. I pulled up next to the guy at the light and told him that his axle sound really bad and he should probably check it but he just said thanks, looked back to check if the boat was still there and drove off :-? As the saying goes, "Here's your sign"
