How to straighten Prop Protecting Bar on Trailer

Recommended Posts

mtnbkr738

Hey Everyone,

So i somehow... i dont know how... i bent this bar that protects the prop on the trailer. I dont know the name of the bar. Anyways...it just has a slight enough bend upward to it that the prop will hit it if it happens to be aligned correctly. ANY ideas on how to straighten this??

Im thinking when the boat is off the trailer just jump on it ... maybe thats crazy.

Any ideas??

put a jack on the intersection of the prop guard, put a 4x4 on top of jack, 4x4 has to be long enough to go under the two main beams of the trailer

pump jack tell it goes a little past straight, when you release the jack the guard will spring back a little.

Ok. So the floor jack with the 4x4 did the trick. Good as new and easy fix. Thx again for all the input!
