Here is the scoop. I have an opportunity to purchase a Sea Ray 207 boat that was tied to a tree close to a cabin where the area flooded and the boat floated roughly 3 to 4 months with the trailer attached.
**The trailer was under water for 3 to 4 months** The trailer has not been towed at all since the water dropped to normal.
Do you think the bearing / axles are shot?
Am I out-of-line for wanting the seller to pull the trailer a few miles himself to confirm towing ability?
If the bearing were greased with Marine grease should the bearings / axles be fine?
I would have to tow the trailer 260 miles across I-80 and the seller is being jerky about asking him to do a test pull on the bearings before I commit to purchase. He lives 30 to 45 mins away.
