We have a jon boat outfitted much like a bass boat and upgraded the trailer axle, wheels and tire to put a comfort zone on weight. We did that mostly because when we are close to home it is loaded with batteries for battery lake fishing and I strip that stuff out for hitting the river or lakes that permit the 20hp merc we have. We now have a saltwater axle and 13" wheels with Hercules tires. The thing on my mind is that most trailer tires come with a warning that you not exceed 50mph towing and I rarely see anybody on the road taking heed of that. If you dont run 60+ you will get run over out there. We would like to make a 6 hour run to the beach and use the boat in the back bay area, but I am not real comfortable pushing down the road and having a failure. All my running gear is almost new and have the good Dexter setup with the rear greasing ported hubs. What is you take on how we may make this trip and not have any issues?
