Default HELP Busted Axles, if your near Montgomery Alabama

All,
I am bringing my boat back from Oregon Inlet to Venice Louisiana passing thru Montgomery Alabama and BOOM lost two Axles.
I ordered replacement Torsion Axles from McClain Trailers in Baton Rouge and my Pops drove them up tonight. My Pops is recovering from a Heart Stint and I can't let him help me.


I need a second man to help me hold the axles so i can line up the holes. as a courtesy, I would offer 300 bucks for the person's generosity.
I will start again in the morning. I need to find a Home Depot in the morning for a Grooved Step Drill Bit to enlarge the hole pattern. I will monitor my PM's.

Thank You All...

Sorry I’m too far too help, but buy a cheap jack to hold up one side while you work on the other side. Or some blocks of wood?

Not close enough, but, how about putting a wheel on one side.

Check for a nearby Harbor Freight. They should have the jacks, stands, straps and tools you need to get back on the road again...cheaply

All of this kindness is a breath of fresh air. I tell people all the time that Alabama is made up mostly of very helpful people

I hope you got going again by now, if not please reach out.. I'm about an hour away from you and have plenty of tools. I think any of us that have ever been in your situation would be happy to help and refuse your money.
