Default Tucker 544 gets new shoes

Over the years, the original pontoon skid plates have deteriorated a bit and were in need of replacing. It appears that a loose track may have allowed the rollers to shift a bit and wear through the welds along the bottom edges of the roller guides. Rather than try and salvage the old ones, we elected to have 4 new stainless ones built. My wife and I are tackling one per night this week after work and its coming together nicely. #shiny, #cooperfab, #newshoes

Good looking shoes and installation. Looks like Low Temp Lubriplate. You are good to go. No more hitching rides with others, Can I hitch a ride with you?

Good eye on the lubriplate Only the best for this cat. After hitching the ride up Cloud Cap last winter with you fine folks, I'm not sure I mind a bit. Either way that is.

Thanks TA, I wish I could take all the credit for such craftsmanship but I'm just lucky enough to know some talented folks. I did pick up a few extra hrs at work though to help pay the bill.....
