Bow Stop Help!!
« on: September 27, 2021, 02:55:52 am »
I just bought a boat in so. cal, and am going to pick it up next week. The bow stop rollers are missing one of the rollers, and i'm trying to figure out what to do before picking up.. I know the bow is gonna have a hole in it if i drive back to TX like it is. You can see that the prior genious has the boat set too far back on the trailer. I've looked all over on west marine, and can't seem to find the one replacement roller, as it looks like it's 1/2" diameter pin. I need to drop this in the water with a new bow stop before driving like this. Can anyone help wit an ID on this guy?

This was the problem I was having finding the replacement. The V rollers won't work with the height, and the existing roller pins are welded in there. the wobble rollers i've found on the interwebs have a 3/4" hole. I believe this is 1/2"

That setup is not what you want for a bow stop.

The winch and bow eye need to be below the roller.
With the existing setup, the boat can go up and over the rollers, and the winch strap will let it happen.

The winch and strap need to be able to hold the boat down to the trailer. This one doesn't do that.



Hope this helps

What city in SO CAL ? Looks like a pretty easy  modification to me.
