Stainless bearings still rust in salt water we use them on sub sea equipment and they corrode when standing
At around a tenner per axle it's easier to just replace them regularly

Thanks for the offer.

Is that what I've to ask for ?

I tend to dry launch the wee boat and just wheel on the transom wheels. The bearings may have taken a pounding when i uplifted the boat and towed it 400 miles. Saying that, i cant prove the condition the bearing were in when i bought the trailer.

If you dry launch the damage to the original bearings was probably done before you bought it.The new ones should do many seasons and 1000s of miles if they don't get wet
You don't fit wheel bearings in a car every few months the only difference is you don't put your car in water

I carry a spare hub with new bearings, a simple 15 min job to change a damaged one and get rolling again, I just practiced doing it with somone that knew how... very very easy now..
