Well.... I did go to Sinclair. Towed my boat from TX to check out the lake and the surrounding area.
Had a blow out less than 100mi from home on less than 2 yr old trailer tires. And yes, I had the
correct amout of air (50psi) and wasnt speeding (65mph). So who knows what happened!!!
Ended up buying 2 new tires along the way as my other tire had a bubble in the sidewall.
Dang Chinese POS tires.... Stopped at a maw n paw tire store in nowhere TX...
(ever heard of AKURET brand tires, me either, but I had no choice at the time.) A internet search
revealed only BAD reports on that brand, so I have already replace them with other Chinese
made tires that have a better reputation.
I let the store I bought the AKURET tires from dispose of my blown out tire, as well as the bubble/sidewall
tire only to get home 2 wks later and find the bill of sale and warranty that indicated both were
under warranty for full replacement still (dang, that hurt).
Anyway..... for my 1st time on the lake I caught a few, and scouted several likely areas.
Only 1 issue with the boat- the fuse to the running lights has some surface corrosion on it
and all my lights went out at 11pm. But some quick work with a small piece of emory cloth
I am working with a real estate office now to find a place on the lake to buy. Retirement
back home to Ga is getting closer every day! I am back in TX now- and looking at another
trip this fall to Sinclair around the 1st week of December.
Any hints of how to locate the FALL CRAPPIES????
Tight lines! Sniper
