I think you glossed over the details on fixing that POS trailer on the side of the road 1800 miles from home, with the Texas Sun melting us into the pavement.
The tires didn't hold air long enough to get around the block...
The Wheels didn't fit the hubs... wtf ... they didn't fit over the centers and the wheels wobbled like a shriners circus clown car.
The Wheel bearings were blown out, and they were from who knows front hubs of some 60's car, Managed to figure out the dimensions of the inners and locate 2 from 2 Autozones and an O'Reilly. Had to reuse everything else, grease it up and pray....
Took 2 AutoZones and the O'Reilly to come up with enough wheel studs to fit the wheel spacers to stop the wobble.
Fortunately after the repairs we were able to drive a tank of gas between air pit stops to refill the New tires.
Good times... best smoked rib sandwich ever in the parking lot of AutoZone. Laughed like hell when the guy drove away with the smoker on fire...

I'm leaning toward a pair of 1960's Johnson 40 hp motors with 1958 Super Seahorse cowls. Simply for quietness and parts availability. This is a big deal considering how much I dislike the look of a fibreglass cowl.
