    A very good idea. I had one snap going around a corner about 5 years ago. Replaced all 6 just to be safe. Cheap and fairly easy.

    but only on one end,the less important end ,i dont see a problem,
    you could've gotten a couple more blocks out of those springs.
    Craigslist them in Key Largo, they'll sell$,or give them to Ratickle, for the prize pool.

    You know if you finish that trailer, you'll have to tow the boat somewhere, right? Or did you not think of that?

    A smart thought, i had one snap circumventing a corner around 5 years back, supplanted every one of the 6 as a sanity check, shabby and genuinely simple
