      I have a piece of rubber hose around the cross bar, the issue is the cross bar is so rusted the CB will break it in half and then hit the road. Last week on a dry day, I crawled under the boat and did a little pushing and pulling on the cross bar and I don't think the bar is giving the trailer that much support as it was pretty wobbly.
